Employers who hire temporary staff or outsource work are strongly advised to contract the services of a certified temporary employment agency or contractor of work. A company certified according to standard NEN 4400-1 or NEN 4400-2 and registered in the Labour Standards Register (in Dutch: Register Normering Arbeid) offers you greater protection against fraud and illegality.
What is NEN 4400?
NEN 4400-1 is a national standard that set requirements for temporary work businesses and contractors of work, including subcontractors, that have their registered office in the Netherlands with respect to the payment of taxes and social insurance contributions and the legitimacy of employment in the Netherlands. The aim of the standard is to limit the risk of recovery and penalties for employers from the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration and other government agencies.
