Dutch Supreme court provides clarity on shareholders' rights to place items on the agenda

The right of shareholders to put items on the agenda of the general meeting pursuant to Section 114a of Book 2 of the Dutch Civil Code, has proved to be an effective means in recent years by which (activist) shareholders have been able to influence the strategy of listed companies. On 20 April last, the Dutch Supreme Court issued an important ruling with regard to the right to place items on the agenda, which shows that shareholders cannot oblige a company to include items which belong to the exclusive competence of the management board on the agenda of the general meeting for a vote.

Publication by Anneke Pelser and Suzanne Gerritse in "tijdschrift Arbeidsrechtpraktijk" (TAP): THE EXTENDED PROBATIONARY PERIOD: A DESIRABLE CHANGE?

The new coalition government has formulated its new policy intentions for reform of employment law regulations. These policy regulations referred to as 'Confidence in the Future' outline a number of changes to employment law regulations aimed at providing a more attractive climate for employers to, inter alia, enter into employment contracts for an indefinite period of time. In this article (in Dutch) we will first of all deal with these questions. Subsequently, we will, by analyzing case law, identify possible consequences of extending the probationary period, and in particular, discuss the need for doing so.
