Following his successful seminar last year, law firm VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne invited prof. Stefan Sagel once more to bring lawyers and clients up to date on a number of current employment law issues. On Thursday 3 March, he was welcomed by the employment team of VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne at the Curaçao office. Via the firm's video conference system the seminar could be attended in Aruba, Bonaire and St. Maarten as well.
During the first half of the afternoon prof. Sagel spoke with the employment team of VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne about the latest developments in the field of collective employment contract law. He also discussed the case of summary dismissal. During the second part of the afternoon, clients in all islands joint the seminar. With this group, prof. Sagel discussed the topic of employers’ liability.
The employment team of VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne is led by counsel Kimberley de l’Isle, along with partner Molly Steward. Kimberley de l’Isle said the following about the seminar: “In employment law, developments take place at a rapid pace. To keep up-to-date it’s important to regularly organize and attend meetings like these. That’s why we’re very pleased that an expert such as prof. Sagel has managed again to free up some of his time this year to share his knowledge and experiences with us and our clients.”
In all islands the seminar concluded with a reception, offering the participants the opportunity to chat with each other about the day’s events while enjoying snacks and drinks. VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne is looking into the possibilities of organizing this type of seminar on a regular basis and will also provide follow-up to the seminar in the form of individual and client-oriented workshops.
