Dutch university terms and conditions of employment in brief

This website provides a general outline of the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (CAO NU) 2016–2017, which has been extended for a year until 30 June 2018, and the terms and conditions that apply to you as an employee of a Dutch university. It sets out the most important information on employment conditions, personal development, leave, occupational health and safety, your employment contract, and pension options in a format that is clear and easy to use.
