Re-employment clause

When UWV, the Employee Insurance Agency of the Netherlands, upholds an employer’s request for permission to discontinue the employment contract with a particular employee for commercial reasons, the Agency will apply the re-employment clause by awarding a right of first refusal to the employee in question in so far as the employer within a 26-week term of the date of dismissal decides to fill the erstwhile employee’s position. The employer’s failure to comply will authorise the employee to petition the Sub District Court, within a two-month term (on pain of the Court dismissing the petition!) of his or her having become aware of the employer’s breach of the re-employment clause, with the request to have the discontinuation of his or her employment contract voided or, alternatively, get the employer to pay him or her fair compensation.

Dutch version: Wederindiensttredingsvoorwaarde
