We check your employment contract and pay slip on payout of the right wage for €242,- Furthermore, we will write a wage claim letter for you. You can send this letter by registered mail to your (or former) employer.
We only write a wage claim letter for you, when your employer owes you more than €500,-. In this letter we claim your unpaid wages, the legal interest, and give him the notice of default, a payment term and we will tell him when he’s in default.
When your employer owes you less than €500,-, then we are not going to do anything for you and you will get your €242,- back, within two weeks. We are not going to do anything for you, because the costs will outweighs your net wage that your employer owes you.
By comparison: A labour law lawyer takes at least three hours time to look at your case and write you a wage claim letter. For that, you will get a bill of at least:
3h x € 165,- + 6% + 21% = €634,88
Note: the lawyer will not give you your money back when you’re claim is less than €500.-.
What if your employer refuses to pay?
When your employer hasn’t paid you the unpaid wages, one month after sending him the wage claim letter, then you are free to choose to take him to Court. You can do that with a labour law lawyer or you can do it together with us.
For writing a petition we charge you €300,-. The cost of this petition is a legal cost and we also will claim that cost at your employer. It is up to the Court to grant this claim.
By comparison: A labour law lawyer takes at least four hours time to look at your case and write you a petition. For that, you will get a bill of at least:
4h x € 165,- + 6% + 21% = €846,52
What should you do if there is a Court hearing of your case?
Your petition will be handled during a Court hearing. You can choose to represent yourself at the Court. It’s not necessary that you’re a lawyer. After all, it is a simple matter. When you are unable to go to the Court or you hardly speak and understand the Dutch language, then you can authorize us to go to the Court for you. We charge €250,-for this authorization and our time.
The cost of this authorization is a legal cost and we also will claim that cost at your employer. It is up to the Court to grant this claim.
Note: When you authorized us and you have paid €250.-, then it’s possible that your employer pays your wages even before the Court hearing takes place. If we don’t have to jus your authorization, we deposit € 250,- back to you, within 2 weeks.
By comparison: When your lawyer has his Office next to the Courthouse, then you’re in luck. Your lawyer must travel to represent you at the Court. It’s fair to say that your lawyer putts at least four hours working in your case. For that, you will get a bill of at least:
4h x €165,- + 6% + 21% = €846,52
What’s the difference?
