Debate night: The future of employment law and the job

The nature and concept of the traditional 'job' is changing dramatically. Some sectors view jobs as a collection of tasks that can be put out to tender or cut altogether. On Thursday 19 April, Stibbe will host a debate night about the 'The future of employment law and the job' in cooperation with the University of Amsterdam. 

Internal platforms and a credit-rating culture

The job is the cornerstone of current employment law. A job is synonymous with a number of fixed tasks performed by an employee under the guidance of a boss in return for an income. However, the nature and concept of the traditional 'job' is changing dramatically. Some sectors view jobs as a collection of tasks that can be put out to tender or cut altogether. These tasks can be done externally via platforms but changes are also happening internally as organizations rethink how they develop. Think of internal platforms for the distribution of work, networking organizations and work-to-work-companies. We are also seeing a credit-rating culture starting to emerge in which employees regularly give each other feedback directly and also received feedback directly from clients.

Given the changes outlined above, does employment law still cover the issues facing employees and employers? After all, the right of dismissal takes the job as the starting point for assessing, for example,  whether someone is functioning poorly. Are employees adequately protected against loss of work if that work is constantly redistributed internally? Are employees exposed to the sometimes unmerciful 360° assessments of their colleagues or their customers? Are these developments leading to the creation of more network organizations in which people are increasingly working as freelancers? During the debate night on 19 April, we want to explore whether this is the case, and consider the impact of the changes happening in the workplace.

Key note speakers are:

  • Laurens Waling, founder of Partup – a company which organizes internal platforms at large companies;
  • Jurriën Koops, CEO of the ABU, which deals with network organizations and internal flexibility at companies;
  • Maurice Limmen, chairman CNV trade union;
  • Bob Timmerman, Product Area lead at ING;
  • Johan Zwemmer, lawyer and lecturer in employment law at the University of Amsterdam, specialising in flexible labour.

This event is aimed at: HR professionals from large organizations, (employment) counsel, employees of trade unions and employers' organizations, researchers, journalists and judges.
