The Implementation of the EU Directive on Transparent and Predictable Employment Conditions amends Book 7 of the Dutch Civil Code, the Flexible Working Act, the Employment Conditions of Seconded Employees in the European Union Act and the New Civil Code Transition Act in connection with the implementation in Dutch legislation of the European Transparent Directive and predictable employment conditions as of June 20, 2019 (Pb EU 2019, L 186). The aim of this directive, and thus the aforementioned law, is to improve the working conditions of employees by promoting more transparent and predictable working conditions while at the same time ensuring adaptability in the labor market.

The Act Implementing the EU Directive on Transparent and Predictable Employment Conditions regulates the minimum rights of every employee in the European Union with regard to the information that must be provided by the employer to an employee and the moment when that information must be provided. In addition, the law contains minimum requirements for employment conditions, which relate, among other things, to the probationary period, the possibility to work for more than one employer (side employment), the predictability of the work to be performed, the transition to other forms of work and the funding of compulsory training.
