Uber forced employees to resign, breaking Dutch labor law: NRC

Taxi organization Uber compelled almost 200 staff at its EU headquarters in Amsterdam, to leave the enterprise before the redundancies were approved by way of state benefit organization UVW, the NRC stated on Saturday.

Uber announced that it did sack 25% of its 27,000 international staff because the coronavirus pandemic kept people out of taxis and sales plunged 80%. Fewer than a thousand work for Uber in Amsterdam, mainly in app development, design, advertising, and sales.

The organization carried out to the UWV for approval for the redundancies, as required in Dutch redundancy law, however before the company could rule, nearly all the employees already signed the relevant paperwork and were given an economic pay-off, the paper said.

‘The people who were wiped out of all the agency’s systems the day when they were told they had to leave,’ the paper stated. ‘They have been also given an everyday reminder approximately signing the settlement and instructed that their activity might cease to exist.’ Many had been ex-pats from outside the EU with little knowledge of Dutch labor regulation, the paper stated.

The NRC bases its assertion on internal and external correspondence and interviews with nine Uber workers. They agreed to speak so long as their names had been kept mystery due to the fact, the NRC stated, they are banned from talking to the clicking of their contracts. Uber’s works council, the FNV trade union, and the UWV all say Uber had the first-rate difficulty in justifying the redundancies, the NRC stated.

Uber informed the NRC that Dutch redundancy legislation became well applied and the perfect facts were shared with the works council. The corporation also stated its plans to transport into a brand new, larger office in Amsterdam’s Zuidas commercial enterprise district remain unchanged.
