Loyens & Loeff

Employment & Benefits

Employers must comply with national and European legislation concerning employment and benefits. The rules are often complex and, in addition, are subject to continuous change. Consider, for example, the maze of rules for international or flexible work. At Loyens & Loeff, we gladly help you put these rules into practice and resolve – or better yet, prevent – all your possible labour law and tax issues. As part of our approach, we address all aspects of labour law from a legal and tax perspective. This means that we are always able to offer you an integrated tailored solution.

How can we help you? 
Our specialists give advice and provide solutions in the areas of labour law, payroll taxes, social insurances, pensions and immigration. This could include preparing and reviewing employment contracts or expat-agreements, (collective) redundancies, the legal position of the statutory director, the labour law aspects of mergers and acquisitions, reorganisations, intra-group secondment, conducting judicial proceedings concerning for example pension or indexation claims, application of the 30% ruling, salary splits, option and share plans or reviewing the tax aspects of employment conditions.

International coverage
If your company has offices in several countries, then you have come to the right address. Our practice group is specialised in Dutch, Belgian, Luxembourg and Swiss law. Moreover, we can rely on a worldwide network of international offices in all major financial centres. Also, we would like to refer to our publications in the lower right-hand corner of the page in which we provide employers with useful tips for activities with a cross-border nature (under publications).

Knowledge sharing
As mentioned, the jurisdictions for payroll taxes and labour laws are in constant flux. Therefore, we regularly update you on legislative changes, relevant judicial rulings or other interesting developments which may have implications for you as an employer. In addition, we will keep you informed of the latest developments via seminars and round table meetings: round table meetings deal with customised specific topics for a limited group of clients. These seminars and round table meetings can also be organised in-house.
