A reorganization is a difficult process that some companies have to go through in order to keep their companies financially healthy. One part of this procedure is letting go of permanent employees by terminating their contracts. In our previous blog we’ve discussed the way for an employer to do this with help of the UWV.

However, the process at the UWV is very expensive, time-consuming and limits the company in its options to select which employees to let go. The better option is to offer employees a termination proposal with mutual consent.

If this is not the case, the chances are likely that the proposals will be refused and the employer still has to go to the UWV.
