Childcare is an industry that constantly faces new challenges. The economic situation strongly influences the supply and demand in the sector, both for placements and staff. Various legislative changes, for example intended to guarantee the quality of childcare, lead to an (even greater) scarcity of qualified staff. A good personnel policy, in which all these factors can be taken into account, is very important.
In addition, the legal aspects of the relationship with the parents (and the children) have become increasingly important. Parents have and express more wishes, such as flexible care hours, and have become more critical. The demand for privacy, in the area of social media and apps, photos and videos, also plays an important role.
Valegis has extensive experience in advising on employment law issues (e.g. sick employees, dismissal/reorganisations and the collective labour agreement for childcare), privacy aspects, guidance in the event of a takeover or merger and other problems you may encounter.
The Childcare sector team will gladly help you with the various challenges that you may be faced with.
