Legal aid for labour disputes

It may happen that, as an employee, you have a conflict about your income. This may be a variety of conflicts, for example, about a salary you have yet to receive. You may also get a conflict about a bonus that you do not receive, but to which you are entitled. The conflict may also relate to (the accrual of) your pension.

If you are faced with an employment conflict regarding your income, you will want to resolve it as best as possible. It is not always possible to come to a solution with your employer. However, there are a number of things you can do yourself, if possible, before calling in your legal assistance insurance.

  • Talk to your employer to find a solution
  • Keep correspondence (e-mails and/or letters) from/with your employer
  • Indicate clearly if you do not understand something and ask for additional explanation or clarification
  • Get your employer to write down a proposal. Make sure that you do not immediately agree to the proposal and that you are given time to think about it.
