COVID-19 and Labour Law: The Netherlands
Keywords:Covid-19, Labour law, NOW, TOZO, Preservation of jobs, Income protection
The Netherlands is in an “intelligent” lock down, which means that social and economic activities are limited, but not to the extent that people are locked in their houses. The main labour law related measure, NOW, aims to protect jobs by compensating the costs of wages when the employer suffers a loss of turnover of more than 20%. Self-employed can apply for a relaxed regime on income support (TOZO). The regular labour law measures have not been altered, with the exception of the driving time for truckdrivers delivering essential goods. Via the Labour Foundation social partners work closely together with the government.
