Course absenteeism counselling: rights and duties in the case of incapacity

HRM or PO employees generally play a major role in the functioning of employees. An important aspect of this is the monitoring of absenteeism, where the rights and obligations of the worker must be clear in the case of sickness.

In our one-day training absenteeism counselling: rights and duties in incapacity for work are explained in a clear and well-organised manner as to what the regulations are about disability and how this Regulation is Developed. This is mainly based on daily practice. Human Resource Management and labour law are inextricably linked. A thorough basic knowledge of labour law is therefore of great importance.


  • The employee appears to have been incapacitated before entering the job. What now?
  • Ill is not the same as incapacitated
  • Who determines if an employee is incapacitated?
  • Obligations under Law Gatekeeper
  • Instruments and penalties for re-integration
  • Wages during illness
  • Calculation Tweejaarsperiode, rules and pitfalls
  • Dismissal during and after two years of illness
  • Obligations during WIA/student
  • Own risk carrier
  • Vangnetters
  • Resignation after two years illness


This training is ideally suited for HRM-PO employees or employees who perform part tasks in the field of HRM or PO. The training focuses on the regulation of the regular employment law, not on the civil Service Law.


This training changes theory with practical examples, so that the theory can also be clearly placed in a recognizable framework. There is also the opportunity to discuss problems encountered by the participants in their own work situation. The participants can learn from each other what different problems occur in daily practice. The participants get to grips with how to handle them.

Training materials

The training material contains a syllabus, with a clear outline of the main lines of laws and regulations and case-law in each subject. In addition, you will receive a book, in which the entire labour law is explained in brief. This will be, depending on the question of which publishing house has the most recent pressure, "the small Guide to Dutch labour law" or "Tree Basics Labor Law".


The course description above gives a good indication of what the training will look like. However, the content may vary slightly per training, depending on the knowledge, practical experience and learning objectives of the participants. Individual intake interviews prior to the training will be used to enumerate the learning objectives of the participants. On this basis, the final programme of the training is determined.
