Checking a settlement agreement (video)

If you have received a settlement agreement (or termination agreement) from your employer, it is advisable to have its contents checked. An initial dismissal proposal is often drawn up one-sidedly and after negotiation by an employment lawyer, a lot more appears to be possible!

In the video below, lawyer Jos de Ridder explains what this procedure looks like and how we are able to assist. The video is in Dutch, but you can switch on English subtitles if needed.

Who is this check intended for?

A free settlement agreement check suits you if the following points largely apply:

You are an employee;
You are dismissed by mutual consent;
You want to know whether you can receive a higher severance payment;
You want to know whether your (intended) dismissal is justified;
You want to know whether you are entitled to unemployment benefits;
You want to be sure that you take the right (legal) steps;
You don't want to incur any costs yet.

How does a settlement agreement check work?

We offer to check your settlement agreement for free. After the check, you can get started with our advice yourself or decide to leave the negotiation with your employer to us. Here you can read how it works and what you can expect.

First request a free check of your settlement agreement. Submit your (draft) settlement agreement via the application form or send it via email or WhatsApp. Please also indicate when we can call you back to discuss the matter.
