Curaçao: the most relevant and frequently asked questions about reorganizing the workforce due to the corona crisis, answered for your company

November 5, 2020


Since the outbreak of the corona virus, we have received various questions with regards to the possible consequences of the corona crisis on employment relationships. Despite the fact that the government of Curaçao created the Emergency Measure on the Bridging of Employment (in Dutch: de Noodmaatregel Overbrugging Werkgelegenheid) (“NOW”) to keep businesses and jobs afloat as much as possible, the crisis will inevitably lead to a loss of turnover and therefore employment.

In these difficult times, we understand that companies wish to stay sustainable in the employment field. Therefore, we have summarized the most relevant and frequently asked questions regarding reorganizing the employment conditions as well as staff reduction, for Curaçao. In an accessible manner, we explain in three separate Q&A’s how to:

  • amend the employment conditions in your company;
  • manage a possible dismissal procedure for your company;
  • reorganize in your company.

If you have any questions or should you wish to receive more information, please contact the attorneys and/or tax specialists from our Employment Law team and/or Tax team.
