Labour law & social security law


Van Goethem Law has great expertise and broad experience in labour law and social security law. This expertise is far-reaching: we are expert in just about all aspects of these disciplines.

We handle the traditional employment and social security issues, as well as issues concerning employment contracts or working regulations, working hours and dismissal procedures, or issues around social security contributions and pensions.

We are also experienced in more specialised areas such as safety and security at the workplace, work-related accidents, bogus self-employment, social criminal law, intellectual property rights of employees, supplementary pensions, collective dismissal, judicial reorganisations, protected workers, and disputes with various agencies such as the social security office (RSZ), the National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (RIZIV), the National Pensions Office (NPO) and the National Employment Office (RVA). 

Our lawyers frequently act on behalf of both SMEs and large multinational corporations, but also individuals including executives and managers.

Whatever legal questions arise: our office offers you a full service package in these complex domains.
