A number of examples of what we can do for you in this area:

  • Negotiations on termination agreements
  • A practical plan of approach for inadequately performing employees, aimed at improvement or, ultimately, dismissal
  • Proactive guidance in the reintegration of your sick employee
  • Guidance in the dismissal of a (statutory) director
  • Drawing up (flexible) employment agreements and corresponding regulations
  • (Advising on) drawing up and amending the employment agreement or management agreement with a (statutory) director
  • Improving your HR policy
  • Acting as a helpdesk for the HR employee

We also advise with company acquisitions, which includes:

  • the consequences of the company acquisition for the staff
  • drawing up management agreements with the directors
  • identifying risks in the employee area and the role of the works council in this

Examples of what we have achieved for our clients

Two years continued payment of salary during illness is more than enough!

An employer had an employee who had been ill over a long period. Hoens & Souren succeeded in preventing the employer from having to pay yet another year’s salary after a period of two years.

Speedy and successful reorganisation

Within one month, Hoens & Souren successfully completed a reorganisation process during which the employer had to let nine employees go. Read on.
