Stibbe organizes seminar about the Executives' Pay (Standards) Act (Wet Normering Topinkomens ("WNT"))

The Executives' Pay (Standards) Act (Wet Normering Topinkomens ("WNT")) came into force over two years ago. There have been many developments since this time in respect of enforcement practice, court judgments regarding the WNT, and in the labour market generally.  Recently, the WNT II came into force and another significant amendment to the WNT – WNT III - has also been announced. These developments raise many questions and topics for discussion.

Stibbe has organized a seminar at its office in Amsterdam on 12 March 2015 from 12.15 until 5 p.m. to address the impact of the WNT and the various amendments. The goal of this seminar is to evaluate the impact  of the WNT during the first two years, discuss  how it works in practice, and to consider future implications. The seminar will consist of short lectures given by expert speakers from inside and outside Stibbe. During this seminar there will be room for questions and discussion.

Please find below the details of the programme.  There will be no fee for the seminar, but we advise you to reserve a place as the number of participants is limited. If you would like to attend kindly apply before Friday the 27th of February via seminar@stibbe.com.

EU Single-Use Plastics Directive is now in force: brief recap
