Law unfair competition adopted

On July 2, 2015 the Senate (Eerste Kamer) of the Dutch Parliament, unanimously adopted the new law with respect to the prevention of unfair competition and falsified (salary) payments (Wet Aanpak Schijnconstructies).

As from July 1, 2015, all employers in the chain of employment will be equally responsible to pay wages according to the collective employment agreement applicable for the branch. The employment inspection will publish the names of the inspected companies.

As from early 2016, it is no longer allowed to deduct costs from the legally applicable minimum wages. Moreover, payment of at least the minimum salary must be done electronically and the reimbursement of expenses must be specified on the salary slip.
