Since the enactment of a new severance pay system in July 2015, the case law on severance payments to directors has further matured. Furthermore, in the meantime a legislative proposal was submitted that aims to implement further changes to the severance pay system per 1 January 2020.

This edition of Quoted provides an overview of dismissal law for directors under corporate and employment law, reviewing the above and other questions and current affairs.
