Ensuring compliance with General Data Protection Regulation
Together with Joost Mosselman, Thijs has assisted a company with the implementation of various obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation, which will enter into force on 25 May 2018. Inter alia, they have drawn up a register of processing activities, processor agreements, and privacy statements. In addition, they have drafted the policy concerning the processing of personal staff data.
Thijs supervised the reorganisation process on behalf of a client with various hotels and conferencing properties. To this end, he submitted applications for dismissal for a total of four locations to the Employee Insurance Agency (UWV). He also prepared all settlement agreements and information letters on behalf of the affected employees. Eventually, settlements were reached with all employees, and the client was able to reorganise the company to satisfaction.
Up-to-date employment contracts
A client with a large number of flexible employment contracts wanted to make sure he had correctly applied the new employment law regulations in order to rule out any unpleasant surprises. Thijs prepared a new set of employment contracts, including contracts for definite and indefinite periods of time, freelance agreements and a settlement agreement.
