Analysis Ovidius – 50% of dismissal requests based on disturbed employment relationship rejected

Almost half of the dismissal requests submitted by employers based on a disturbed employment relationship is rejected.* Any such request will only be granted if the employment relationship is disturbed in such a severe way that the employment contract has to be terminated. The court will then take into account, amongst others, the size of the company of the employer, the years of service of the employee and the efforts taken to end the disruption.

Ovidius has drawn up action plans that can be used by employers in order to enhance the chance that any dismissal request will be granted. If you are interested in receiving these action plans**, please contact Ovidius on


Action plans are available in both Dutch and English

* Based on court decisions published at AR-updates up to and including 26 January 2016
