With all the COVID-19 news, it could almost escape attention.
Nonetheless, in other times there has been a lot of noise about this: compensation for the transitional allowance in the event of a dismissal after two years of illness.
The Transitional Compensation Fee Scheme will enter into force on 1 April 2020. From that day on, an employer can submit a request to the Employee Insurance Agency (UWV) for compensation of the transition fee paid to a long-term incapacitated employee.
In old cases, UWV will decide within six months after the application. Is the decision positive? Then the UWV will pay within six weeks. In principle, the UWV will decide on new cases within eight weeks. In the event of a positive decision, payment will be made within six weeks.
Do you disagree with the decision? Then you have six weeks to file an objection. Call us for assistance. Do you want to make sure that your application is going well? We are happy to help you with this too.
