Dear Madam or Sir,
this second issue of the 2016 Newsletter starts off by considering a new statutory provision, which will take effect on 1 October 2016 and has attracted little attention to date. It will influence the drafting of time-bar clauses in agreements.
In addition, since the requirements laid down by the case law continue to increase, we revisit the question of the significance of Occupational Integration Management in the case of dismissal due to illness. Finally, we consider whether employees who are on vacation can be recalled, how a notice of dismissal should be formulated, and whether parental leave may be requested by sending a facsimile or e-mail.
