I looked for a link to the CJIB pages on paying fines in monthly bits. It is here: https://www.cjib.nl/betalen-delen-aanvragen-voor-een-verkeersboete. He will have to make a request for such an arrangement at the CJIB himself. It will depend on what type of communication he has received from the authorities, and how quickly he responds to it.

Compliance with the Dutch Constitution is evaluated pre-enactment, rather than post-enactment as indicated below. The Dutch Constitution prohibits the courts from reviewing the constitutionality of Acts of Parliament. They are however obliged to assess whether statutory regulations are compatible with international treaties. The ban on ...

ECJ case C170/3 covers this (BPM on car imports to the Netherlands, when the car was not originally owned by the driver/importer) specifically. There are two requirements: You must own the car at the moment that you import it. Prior to import, you must have had a connection to the car. The first condition is logical; if your parents would still own the car ...

This is not an NDA (non-disclosure agreement), it is a non-compete agreement. An NDA would tell you that you cannot disclose anything you did or saw at your old employer's place. A non-compete agreement is what you have here, an agreement that limits your ability to get work. If what you say is correct, then your employer is not exactly the brightest. You ...

It is rather unclear what the facts are, and the legal answer would depend crucially on those facts. My understanding is that you bought a domain from a provider, and they allowed you to use a web server for some period. It also appears that you don't have a clear understanding of the contract, which may have been made online and you might not have retained ...

It is their property, so keeping it without permission could well be seen as theft. I think you are obliged to make reasonable attempts to notify them you have their property before using it or selling it. Just like if someone left the item at your house after a party. If they want it back, however, it is at their cost, you should not be out of pocket ...

Under the Dutch Civil Code article 1:245, "All minor children are subject to authority". Article 1:247 says that "Parental authority comprises the duty and right of the parent to care for and raise his minor child". This basically means that parents have the right to exercise authority over their children (until age 18). Art. 1:249 says that: A minor ...

If it were me, I would leave. Who wants to rent a room in a home where you are not wanted? However, there should be concessions. I would ask for 1.5 months rent refunded, but would happily settle for one month. I am sure there are many nice rooms, close by, where you are welcomed. Given additional information commented by the OP, the landlord is ...

I got and answer from lawyer in Netherlands. To rent out to the company is not without risks. You rent out to the company and the company rents out to the actual user of the apartment. That is subletting. The sub-lessee is protected by law. So when the company fails to pay, you can end the contract with the company (you have to go to court for this), but ...

There appears to be an ambiguity here in exactly which terms apply. Under Dutch law, the Contra proferentum principle can be applied. As the rental agreement is typically drafted by the landlord, the duty to avoid ambiguity lies on his side. Any remaining ambiguity will be resolved in favor of the other party, i.e. the renter. A secondary and related ...

Short answer: No Long answer: If you are obligated by law to help suicidal persons, you can get prosecuted. From Wetboek van Strafrecht, Title XV: Artikel 255: Hij die opzettelijk iemand tot wiens onderhoud, verpleging of verzorging hij krachtens wet of overeenkomst verplicht is, in een hulpeloze toestand brengt of laat, wordt gestraft met gevangenisstraf ...

I can't find a link proving it, but car registration taxes are not covered by the rules on free movement of goods. Thus the answer is "Yes, the Netherlands can legally enforce the car import tax." This page from the EU commission talks about removing the different levels of registration taxes, but doesn't actually say they are allowed. This page talks ...

Can a therapy organization get away with catering to one patient's needs, despite that being extremely counterproductive to the needs of another patient, especially if the former is the one breaking the rules? Is it legal for the landlord to blatantly ignore a contract that was signed by all the involved parties and not take any action against one of these ...

You can try the European Small Claims Procedure. The European Small Claims Procedure is available to litigants as an alternative to the procedures existing under the laws of the Member States. A judgment given in the European Small Claims Procedure is recognized and enforceable in another Member State without the need for a declaration of enforceability and ...

I want to create a CV file and include list of the projects (names, maybe screenshots (screenshots are available publicly)) which I worked on, but my old employer says that it will breach the NDA, is that so? Generally speaking, no. Contract law (including Dutch contract law) requires the principle of reasonableness. Since the publicly available ...

You most certainly can process names and email addresses. With further details, such as IP addresses, things are more tricky. Let's have a look at some relevant parts of 95/46/EC: 'processing of personal data' ('processing') shall mean any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as ...

Without reference to Dutch law, and thus assuming it requires you or a member of your household to have been the owner of the motor vehicle for six months, the question hinges on whether in German law, the possessor of a motor vehicle that was bought by someone else, is indeed its owner. Unlike in English law, possession and ownership are separate concepts ...

GENERAL: In the United States it is illegal under the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) to break any form of Digital Rights Management (DRM) to enable software features you didn't pay for. The exceptions some have mentioned here do NOT apply to unlocking features that are not paid for. Someone also asked if there was a license, and again, that is ...

Yes. Sue under Dutch law, and then apply to the Irish courts to enforce the judgement of the Dutch court. This will be pretty much rubber stamped.

For a general background on Dutch contract law see here. This link is particularly relevant to various aspects of your situation. Can I take legal action if he decides to let me go without notice if I refuse to sign the NDA? Yes, as that would constitute breach of contract. Unless you failed the [contract law] covenant of good faith and fair dealing, ...

If your friend is in the Netherlands, and goes to court for something he did in the Netherlands, then quite obviously he will be tried under Dutch law. I'm not aware of any particular protections for anyone who sexually harasses others on the job, neither in the USA nor in the Netherlands. Is that actually the question you wanted to ask?

Unfortunately they need to be both an EU citizen and a permanent resident of the UK.

If all parties (including the one who wants to end the agreement) signed an addendum terminating that person's participation, that would cover it. There isn't enough information to speak to whether or not they could just void the contract right now.

No, there is no general law in the Netherlands (nor elsewhere in Europe, as far as I know) that would require an employer to provide employees with car parking spaces. There are rules in some countries (or cities) about how many parking spaces must be built when a new building is built, or an existing building is converted (for example the ...

You have a contract with ambiguous terms: a signed lease with a 3 year term and correspondence and a verbal agreement with a 1 year term. None of these documents/verbal discussions is the contract; they are only evidence of the contract. The contract itself is what was agreed between the parties. Based on your question, you are clear that what was agreed ...

Let's take Runescape as the example, because there's some guidance about the Dutch legal status of items in that game: the ToS terms do not alter the fact that within Runescape, items are under the actual and exclusive control of a specific player. That is to say, we can treat these virtual goods as if they were non-virtual. Now what is the legal status if ...
