Help! I want to dismiss my employee


A round-up of selected topics and the latest developments, presented by using our new severance calculating tool, PREAVIZ!

Staff dismissal is an important part of every HR-professional’s daily life. Yet, it can be challenging to stay on top of the many emerging legal developments affecting your decision to let someone go. A dismissal can generate multiple questions when it comes to determining an employee’s notice period or indemnity in lieu of notice. 

This webinar presents our views on pending debated topics as well as an update on the latest case law that could affect how you calculate someone’s notice period or severance package. We will also cover some new peripheral issues that employers face when discharging employees.

Last but not least, we will present PREAVIZ, our new online tool, which can be your ‘personal assistant’ when calculating an employee’s notice period and severance indemnity and provides ready-to-share simulation sheets.

PROGRAMME (12.30 pm – 2 pm)

ALTIUS employment lawyers, Philippe De Wulf and Astrid Caporali, will present selected topics and new developments by going step-by-step through an HR-professional’s typical thought-process when considering dismissing someone.
This webinar’s topics include: 

  • Which start date do I need to take into account? What about (international) group mobility: does this count for the length of service to be taken into account?
  • What to do with a notice clause included in my pre-2014 employment contracts?
  • Which (monthly) salary do I take into account when someone is on time-credit or parental leave? 
  • What about bonuses, stock options, RSUs or other equity-based incentives? Do I have to include these in the reference salary for the indemnity in lieu of notice and which amount must I take into account? 
  • What is the latest case law in evaluating a company car benefit?
  • Do I have to motivate a dismissal twice if I first serve notice and then terminate the contract with immediate effect? What about the outplacement offer
  • Plus much more… 


Thursday 30 September 2021, from 12.30 pm until 2 pm.
