Employee protection during pre-pack

On 22 June 2017, the European Court of Justice (hereinafter “ECJ”) clarified the uncertainty around protection of employees against dismissal during a pre-pack. The ECJ has ruled that the EU Directive on Transfer of Undertakings (Directive 2001/23/EC) also applies in case of a relaunch of a company due to a pre-pack. As a result of this the employees are transferred to the restarting company by operation of law upon retention of their terms and conditions of employment.

Central shareholders’ register

On 19 January 2017, a private member’s bill has been filed to the Lower House of Dutch Parliament with regard to the establishment of a central shareholders’ register (‘centraal aandeelhoudersregister’). 

The object of the establishment of a central shareholders’ register is to create more insight into the identity of shareholders of legal entities. In addition, it appears that a physical shareholders’ register is often untraceable or the information is not up to date. The legislator would like to accomplish a higher degree of reliability of this information.
