    Advice for changes in labor law

    The Netherlands Social and Economic Council (SER) has issued an advisory report to the yet-to-be-formed new cabinet of the Dutch government on the socio-economic policy for the next four years. It is the first time since 2006 that the SER – made up of employers’ associations, trade unions and independent experts – have joined to draw up such a report. In the report, the SER discusses, among other things, the current problems on the labor market, such as the increase in job and financial uncertainty, inequality and dissatisfaction. Problems only exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic. The SER wants to tackle the causes of these problems by investing heavily in what they call ‘brede welwaart’ (broadscale welfare) in their report.

    Committee Borstlap

    The advice by the SER resembles the advice published last year in the final report by the ‘Commissie Regulering van Werk’ (Work Regulation Committee), headed by Hans Borstlap. It is hoped that the new cabinet will take heed of the advice and incorporate (some of) the recommended measures into national legislation. This would again cause major changes, primarily with respect to the rules on flex work, leave of absence and schooling opportunities. Keep in mind, however, that at the time this article was written the report was still a draft version. It will first be presented to various different parties involved before a final version is officially drawn up. This means some recommended measures may still be changed.
