Questions regarding labor law 

I have been fired. Do I have a legal right to severance payment?

When you are fired, you often have a right to severance payment. The height of the severance payment is determined by your salary and the duration of your employment. Because this legislation came into function on the first of january 2020, there are two systems active at this moment. If you were fired before the first of january, the old (https://werknemer.mijnwerkenzekerheid.nl/transitievergoeding/een) system applies. If you were fired after the first of january, the new (https://rekenhulptransitievergoeding.nl/) system applies.
