Andersen, through the member and collaborating firms of Andersen Global and its European Employment Practice, has prepared this Guide to provide an overview of termination procedures for employees in 21 European countries.

Even though European countries are regulated with the same principles, the considerable differences between one country and another make sometimes difficult for multinational companies to have an overview of how terminations work in different jurisdictions.

Each of the 21 countries has its country report, summarizing its individual and collective dismissal rules, formal requirements that must be observed, and the participation of employees´ representatives and state authorities.

We are confident that the Guide will help you considering this type of measure in different locations of the European continent. In case you are interested in receiving more detailed information, please contact one of the members of the Andersen Employment Practice who will be glad to give further advice.

Our Employment Practice has a proven track record in delivering best-in-class and seamless service.
