If an employer receives an unsolicited CV of a suitable candidate from a recruitment agency, this does not automatically mean that the employer may not approach the candidate directly. This is evident from a recent ruling in which the court rejected the agency's claim for compensation.

The employer, a logistics service provider, had posted a vacancy on its website. A recruitment agency sent the employer an e-mail that it had a suitable candidate. The employer expressed interest. A week later, the agency emailed the candidate's resume to the employer and, shortly thereafter, the cooperation agreement with the terms and conditions. The employer did not accept the proposal. Subsequently, the agency discovered that the employer had employed the candidate directly. In the District Court of Gelderland, the agency claimed compensation amounting to a quarter of the candidate's gross annual salary plus a penalty, based on the agency's agreement and conditions.

Working in 2021: what will that look like?

Because of the coronapandemic, our way of working looks completely different than it did a year ago. But to what extent are these changes permanent? If corona is on its way out, what will working in 2021 look like? Will we all go back to the office or will working from home be here to stay? And what will the workplace of the future look like? We outline 2021 in six trends and developments in working.

1. We will continue to work at home (in part)
Last summer, the KiM (Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis) conducted a major study. It showed that 45 percent of the people who started working more from home during the corona crisis expect to continue doing so (partially) in 2021 and in the future. Currently, about 48 percent of working people work (partially) at home.
