Many Dutch companies have declared a collective agreement («CLA») («CAD») applicable. Under Dutch law, this CTC is compulsory for all Dutch employment contracts within the company and provides for basic terms of employment such as: payment of wages, leave rights, overtime, termination of contracts, etc. Therefore, if a gross or annual monthly salary is agreed with a worker subject to Dutch law, this gross salary is in addition to 8% of leave allowances. In the employment contract, make sure that the salary includes or not the 8% leave allowance. Otherwise, the worker retains his right to leave pay, despite possible agreements. Buitengewoon verlof (extraordinary holidays) – not covered by labour law The 2017-2019 version of CLA is accessible via this link: www.labouragreementuniversities.nl/. A trial period is a regular part of a fixed-term contract with an employer. The trial period applies to both parties and must be the subject of a written agreement. If the term of the fixed-term contract is less than two years, the maximum trial period is one month.
Exceptions can only be made if a collective employment contract is applicable. The maximum legal trial period for an indeterminate contract or a fixed-term contract of two years or more is two months without the possibility of renewal. Fixed-term contracts of six months or less cannot have a trial period. In addition, a trial phase is not valid if the employee is doing work that he or she has previously done in another location of the company. They can be released during the trial phase. Your employer doesn`t need to give a reason. You also have the right to complete your work without notice or declaration during the trial phase, as the test phase goes both ways. It is not mandatory, but most Dutch companies reimburse workers for the cost of commuting.
In the collectieve arbeidsovereenkomst – CAD (collective employment contract), in company regulations or in your employment contract, you will find the rules in force. There are two types of collective agreements; The collective agreement by company and the collective agreement by industry. The collective agreement is a collective agreement between employers (or employers` organizations) and unions on wages and other conditions of employment. The government is not involved in these agreements. The OAC (collaborative work agreement) could include other agreements regarding the number of days off, payment and the amount of leave pay. Most companies and organizations participate in a collective employment contract. It is a written agreement between one or more employers and one or more unions on the working conditions of all workers, such as wages, remuneration for extra work, working time, probation, retirement, education and childcare. If you run a business in the Netherlands, you may need to work with a collective agreement (Collectieve Arbeidsovereenkomst, CAD). CAOs are collective agreements between employers (or employers` organizations) and unions on wages and other conditions of employment. Collective agreements are legally binding on the affiliation of employers` and trade union organisations that sign them. However, employers who sign an agreement are required to offer the same conditions to non-union members, so that in practice all workers, whether unionized or not, are covered.
