Summary

In August 2002, the Netherlands NCP received a request for review by a trade union alleging that a multinational enterprise had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in the Netherlands during its bankruptcy process.

As the Dutch affiliate went bankrupt and the management was dispersed, a tripartite meeting was not possible. The NCP decided to draw a conclusion, based on the information gathered from bilateral consultations and court rulings. A final statement was issued on the NCP website www.oecdguidelines.nl.
