BASE Advocaten Rotterdam

The collective agreement (cao)

Many employers and employees in the Netherlands are covered by a collective agreement. This may be the consequence of a membership of a union, but also of the fact that this is agreed upon in writing or by a ministerial decree. A collective agreement generally covers many issues with respect to the employment conditions applicable between an employer and an employee. However, it may also contain obligations for the employer towards the union. The lawyers of BASE Advocaten advise on and litigate over the applicability of collective agreements and its consequences. If you are considering to join a collective agreement, feel free to turn to BASE Advocaten as well.

The Litigation firm

Solving your problem, so that you can continue with your business. That is what it is all about. It is our profession and our passion to make a business dispute or employment dispute manageable and to solve it. Sometimes we are able to do this by staying invisible by casebuilding the best file possible for and together with you behind the scenes. Being diplomatic where possible and aggressive where needed. And sometimes, full-on litigating is unavoidable. Because limits have been reached, because the other party remains unwilling to come to a constructive amicable solution, or because it may be important for your market reputation to draw a line.

Tailor-made service is key in the handling of each case. Because we are doing it together, lawyer and client. We invest in the mutual cooperation and we look in depth at your company and your market. BASE makes clear choices out of strength, because we only want to do what we are really good at and because you are simply counting on added-value.
