The 2017-2019 version of CLA is available via this link: www.labouragreementuniversities.nl/. A trial period is a regular part of a fixed-term contract with an employer. The trial period applies to both parties and must be the subject of a written agreement. If the term of the fixed-term contract is less than two years, the maximum trial period is one month. Exceptions can only be made if a collective employment contract is applicable. The maximum legal trial period for an indeterminate contract or a fixed-term contract of two years or more is two months without the possibility of renewal. Fixed-term contracts of six months or less cannot have a trial period. In addition, a trial phase is not valid if the employee is doing work that he or she has previously done in another location of the company. They can be released during the trial phase.
Your employer doesn`t need to give a reason. You also have the right to complete your work without notice or declaration during the trial phase, as the test phase goes both ways. If you run a business in the Netherlands, you may need to work with a collective agreement (Collectieve Arbeidsovereenkomst, CAD). CAOs are collective agreements between employers (or employers` organizations) and unions on wages and other conditions of employment. There are very few public holidays in the Netherlands. Whether you are free to work these days depends on the agreements between the employer and the employee in the OAC (collaborative employment contract) or in your employment contract. If there is no CAD, you will need an individual agreement with your employer on working conditions, preferably in writing. The rules established by law form the basis of this agreement, that is, the employment contract. The OAC (collaborative work agreement) could include other agreements regarding the number of days off, payment and the amount of leave pay. As a member of the Federation of Temporary Employment Agencies (ABU), we comply with the rules of the collective agreement (CAO) that apply to temporary workers.
