settlement agreement (VSO)

I have received a settlement agreement from my employer, what now?! I will fight for your rights.

It is entirely understandable that when you are offered a settlement agreement (VSO), you have numerous questions and uncertainties. Questions such as "Should I sign or not?", "Can I make a counteroffer?", "Will I get what I'm entitled to?", and "Is my unemployment benefit secured?" are very common.

Furthermore, you may feel pressured by your employer, experience stress, and therefore not know what to do. Seeking legal assistance in a settlement agreement is not an unnecessary luxury and is very common in practice. Moreover, the costs of obtaining legal assistance are usually fully or partially reimbursed by the employer.

You may be in conflict with your employer, there may be a reorganization, you may have been ill for two years and are facing dismissal, or there may be a difference of opinion. That's why you are looking for answers, help, clarity, and peace of mind. Feel free to contact us.

What can we do for you? We will explain to you in a straightforward and pleasant manner what your rights are and which legal aspects are indispensable in a settlement agreement;
We will outline all the possibilities and options, with your interests at the forefront, so that you can make an informed choice about which direction to take;
We will take over all communication between you and your employer, so you don't have to worry about it;
We will, in consultation with you, negotiate on your behalf and get the best deal for you.

Our goal is to ensure that you ultimately sign your settlement agreement with confidence because you understand its contents and are sure that you get what you're entitled to.

Together Abroad provided expert advice on personal branding including developing a top-notch, market-aware CV, highly tailored job applications, and approach strategies with potential employers in the Netherlands. Furthermore, I found them be highly knowledgeable in key related fields such as recruitment strategy, immigration law, contracts, labor agreements, and (un)employment benefits. I would recommend Together Abroad to anyone who needs professional help with transitioning to a new career.

Linda is a big mind. She thinks about things that the rest normally overlook. The insight she has about the dutch job market can only be achieved through years of experience and persistence.

Her business savvy is complemented by her mastery of understanding the client's needs and requirements. For my career I could say, she was the “Mary Poppins”, who guided me through thick and thin and helped me to land a career in the Netherlands

If you are going to enlist the services of a "Career Coach" look no further. The only person you want in your corner is Linda van Orsouw. As an expat, you absolutely want to work with a highly skilled and knowledgeable professional who knows their way around the Dutch career/employment/job market. Linda assisted me in writing and positioning my CV, helped me organize and prioritize my list of opportunities, coached me through mock interviews and was there when I got offered a senior position only 2 months later. When asked I will only refer to Linda and "Togetherabroad".
