Given the strict legal protection of employees in the Netherlands, many employers prefer to work with freelancers as they cannot claim status as employees. On the other hand, whether someone is or is not an employee is determined by law; the client and the freelancer do not always have the right to define the legal status of their relationship. Legal advice is essential to avoid problems relating to tax and social premiums.

Family Law

The Netherlands has a modern and liberal family law structure, whereby non-traditional relationships are treated in the same way as traditional relationships. However, the matter of whether the partners are officially married or living together unmarried makes a lot of difference.  The law applies certain consequences to the existence of a marriage.
