A highly committed professional, Hans Erik has known our organisation longer than we have. He is a creative team player and always thinks five steps ahead.
Our lawyers assist shareholders as well as individual directors once a proposed dismissal decision comes into play. We advise, negotiate and, if necessary, take steps to litigate.
Our areas of expertise
Directors do not enjoy legal protection against dismissal. Which is not to say that dismissal is therefore any easier in that case. On the contrary. All sorts of legal rules come into play the interface of company law and employment law. The experts at Rassers are without peer in this regard, and also work closely with their colleagues from the Business Law practice group. This combination offers considerable added value.
Whilst the directors of associations and foundations do, however, enjoy protection against dismissal, they are frequently also subject to the Senior Executives in the Public and Semi-Public Sector (Standards for Remuneration) Act (Wet normering topinkomens), which gives rise to its own unique set of problems. In this respect, too, Rassers’ lawyers are experts.
This is how we do it
Depending on the situation and the type of organisation (business, association/foundation), we analyse the facts and grounds for dismissal, if any, and identify all the applicable rules and regulations. We advise, negotiate and guide clients through all potential pitfalls, all the way to court if necessary.
