BASE Advocaten Rotterdam

The position of the director

Because the director under the articles of association often also has an employment agreement aside from his corporate relationship, employment law may also be applicable to him/her. The position of the director under the articles of association, however, differs on important points from the position of the ordinary employee. For example, the dismissal procedures for directors under the articles of association are different as a consequence of the fact that dismissal under employment law will be linked to corporate dismissal. BASE Advocaten has much experience with such procedures and is therefore able to handle such a procedure very carefully, both on the side of the company and on the side of the director.

Furthermore, the “Wet Normering Topinkomens” (WNT) is applicable to many directors in the public and semipublic sector. This act not only limits the amount of a ‘top official’ salary, but also the amount of possible severance payments. From the moment of effectuation of the WNT, BASE Advocaten has been advising care institutions and individual directors on the effects of the WNT and the lawyers of BASE Advocaten litigate over disputes arising therefrom.

Solving your problem, so that you can continue with your business. That is what it is all about.

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.
