It’s not uncommon that expats get confused or, even worse yet, taken advantage of because they don’t know the rules, rights, or their obligations. Furthermore, internationals are afraid to get into litigation, get legal support, or take an employer to court because they may not know the system. Doing this in Dutch is even scarier. Join us for this free webinar as we help you navigate this intricate, employee-friendly legal system!
