We are Stibbe Employment and Benefits specialists

Our lawyers work in close partnership with clients helping them to achieve their strategic goals in employment and benefits.

Employment and Benefits

By the very nature of this area of law, matters can be sensitive, urgent and at times, both. In response, we act promptly and decisively providing strategic, tailored advice to our clients.

On the menu to the right you will find a list of specialisms we provide both to domestic and international businesses.

Amongst a broad spectrum of expertise, we have a special focus in complex strategic employment law issues such as executive remuneration, equal pay, flexible work solutions and restructuring issues. Litigation is also an inseparable component of our work and we act on matters relating to various employment and pensions issues. In this field we have been involved in many litigation cases against unions, groups of employees and executives.

Our experience also encompasses negotiating and drafting employment contracts, compensation and benefits schemes, collective bargaining agreements and advising on the many legal constraints of a dismissal.

As strategic employment law matters entail legal aspects beyond traditional employment law, we regularly work in close partnership with our regulatory, tax, corporate and corporate governance specialists.

What does a legal entity know?

Short Reads - In civil law many rules rely for their legal effect on the presence of certain knowledge or a certain intention with one of the parties. If the party at hand is a legal entity, like a limited company (besloten vennootschap), it can be difficult to determine what the entity knew. Fragments of information can be present in different parts of the organisation; an officer of the company may have gained his knowledge trough his private life; he may also have a duty of confidentiality.
