Termination with mutual consent


Employment agreements in the Netherlands are most often terminated with mutual consent. Not legal proceedings. Parties negotiate the conditions for termination and these are recorded in a written settlement agreement.

Compensation, and?

Not only the height of the severance is of importance when negotiating the terms for termination. Making arrangements on issues  like the date of termination, safeguarding unemployment benefits, paid holidays, non-compete clauses, legal and outplacement costs, is vital as well.

Expert advice

Have the draft agreement agreement reviewed by an employment lawyer. It is common practice that these costs are covered by your employer.
