The new world of work in the Netherlands

The COVID-19 pandemic and the measures put in place in countries around the world – including the Netherlands – has compelled employers and employees to adopt a new vision for work, such as work from home.

Year after the pandemic began, home-office remote work has proven so effective, it could become part of the post-pandemic future. But remote work raises a host of legal and administrative challenges.
