Stibbe in Amsterdam answers questions from consumers, small business foundations and NGOs about the coronavirus [updated]

20.05.2020 NL law

In a special Q&A (in Dutch), lawyers from our Amsterdam office share their legal expertise and strive to provide answers to questions put to us by consumers, self-employed persons, enterprises large and small, foundations and NGOs as a result of the corona crisis.

The consequences of the coronavirus (COVID-19) affect almost everyone. The outbreak of the virus, and the subsequent measures to address it, are causing unrest and uncertainty. We see a clear demand for clear legal advice from our clients. To meet this demand, we have set up a specialized Corona Team to advise our clients on the legal consequences of the virus.

We also want to make a difference for individuals, small businesses and society in general. With this social responsibility in mind, our pro bono committee is making our knowledge and expertise available to organisations and individuals who do not have the resources to obtain legal assistance. With this Q&A, we make a start. This document provides an initial overview of the legal consequences of the coronavirus for consumers, self-employed persons, large and small businesses, foundations and NGOs. In this way we answer questions in the areas of employment law and taxation, administrative law, contract law, mortgages, rent and loans, and privacy. We hope to use our expertise to answer possible questions that many consumers and businesses currently have.

While some may have expected the way ahead to have cleared by now, the opposite is in fact true: at the time of writing this blog, the EU and UK (or the Netherlands and the UK) have not agreed on any framework that replaces the EU legislation no longer applicable to the UK.

Participatie en privacyregels: hoe te combineren onder de Omgevingswet?

Short Reads - In het stelsel van de Omgevingswet (Ow) is een belangrijke rol bedacht voor participatie bij de totstandkoming van besluiten. Het beoogde resultaat: tijdig belangen, meningen en creativiteit op tafel krijgen en daarmee een groter draagvlak en kwalitatief betere besluitvorming bereiken. Door een grotere betrokkenheid van meer personen gaan overheden en initiatiefnemers ook meer persoonsgegevens verwerken. Dit brengt privacyrisico’s met zich mee. Wat regelt de Ow op het gebied van privacy, de verwerking van persoonsgegevens en datagebruik?
