Security for legal costs by foreign parties

Legal proceedings often end with a verdict and an order for costs. The default rule is that the "loser" of the legal proceedings shall pay such legal costs. In legal proceedings involving two Dutch parties, enforcement of a verdict – and with that also the payment of the order to pay the costs – seldom poses a problem (unless the losing party has no recourse). That would be different if the losing party is domiciled abroad. If a foreign party loses legal proceedings in the Netherlands, this may cause enforcement issues, especially when no enforcement treaty applies between the Netherlands and the losing party’s country.

The Bill Working Wherever you Want approved by the Lower House of Parliament

On January 27th 2021, 2 political parties (D66 and Groenlinks) submitted the Bill Working Wherever you Want. This Bill has now been approved by the Lower House of Parliament. The Bill intends to facilitate employees in being able to enforce (partially) working from home. After all, research has shown that a majority of people working from home during the corona crisis have experienced this as pleasant, while there are still employers who require their employees to come to the office, despite working from home being an option.

Extension of the duty to inform at commencement of the employment contract

On 20 June 2019 the European Directive on Transparent and Predictable Employment Conditions ("the Directive") was adopted. As the Directive must be integrated in the Dutch legal system by 1 August 2022, a legislative proposal was submitted to Parliament last year. The legislative proposal was adopted by the Senate on 21 June 2022. Based on this new legislation, the existing non-exhaustive list of subjects in respect which the employer has to inform the employee in writing or electronically will be extended.
