In October 2004, the Netherlands NCP received a request for review by a trade union alleging that a US-based multinational enterprise had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in the Netherlands by attempting to introduce a 40 hour working week.

Parallel legal proceedings took care of the trade union's concerns and the NCP subsequently concluded the specific instance.
