If you have a company in the Netherlands and you employ foreign workers on a temporary basis, you will in some cases have to provide suitable accommodation. This obligation applies if it is included as a provision in the Collective Labour Agreement for your business sector or if you employ workers who need a work permit. The Knowledge centre on flexible housing (Expertisecentrum Flexwonen, EF) offers tips on (temporary) housing for foreign workers (in Dutch).
Temporary employment agencies and foreign companies
The statutory requirement to provide accommodation also applies to temporary employment agencies and companies established outside of the Netherlands that employ workers in the Netherlands. Self-employed professionals must find their own accommodation.
The accommodation must meet a number of basic requirements regarding hygiene, safety and quality. The precise details of the rules differ from municipality to municipality. If you meet their standards, you can register with the SNF Foundation.
