For many years our office has held a highly respected practice in Government Employment. Our experts not only have extensive experience in procedural administrative law; they are also highly proficient in ‘ordinary’ employment law. This complementary experience and knowledge is becoming ever more important in this practice. After all, the trend is increasingly to apply employment law tenets to the relationship between administrative bodies and government employees. In addition, there is a development towards bringing the legal status of (business) employees and government employees more and more to the same level.
Our attorneys assist administrative authorities in particular, as well as government employees and holders of political office (although they naturally are not government employees). This assistance takes place during reorganisations, privatization and integration of services, in employee participation, evaluations and performance, dismissal, disciplinary measures and employment disputes, job description and assessment, illness and rehabilitation obligations.
