Germany Employment Agreement

Employment Agreement


  • Official employer of record: TCWGlobal

  • An employment contract in the Netherlands may only have a probationary period if the contract has a duration greater than six months.

  • Contracts (including open-ended) between 6 months and 2 years can have a maximum probation period of one month.

Termination Notice

  • The employer and the employee can terminate the employment contract without disclosing a reason during the probationary period.

  • After the probation period, employment relations can only be terminated with immediate effect under specific conditions, such as gross misconduct.

  • If an employee is on a fixed-term contract, there is mandatory termination protection. If a temporary contract will not be extended, Dutch law dictates that the employer must notify the employee in writing, at least one month in advance. If this written notice is not provided, the employee will be entitled to one month of employment or the equivalent pay. An employment agreement may be terminated if the dismissal is based on objective grounds.
