Web Module Assessing Employment Relationships
Hiring a self-employed professional comes with rules. To clarify these rules, the government has developed an anonymous, online questionnaire (in Dutch).
Completing all the questions in the tool will produce one of the following results:
- Indication that the assignment can be performed by a self-employed professional, outside employment.
- Indication that the employment relationship is actually a form of employment.
- The replies do not make clear what the work relation is in this case.
No legal decision
The outcome of the online tool is merely an indication, not a legal decision. You cannot make any legal claims based on the outcome. But the outcome can help you decide how to have the assignment carried out.
Who can use the online tool?
Employers and procurers in the Netherlands who set out assignments to contractors in the Netherlands.
The online tool is not for contractors or sector representatives, unless they act in the role of procurer. If you enter into an agreement with a legal entity, the online tool will not give a result. Nor if you act as an intermediary or mediator. Read more about work relationship agreements as a self-employed professional.
Questions and support
If anything in the questionnaire is unclear, you can send an email to email@example.com. The questions in the online tool are based on the information you provide about the assignment.
Do not close the online tool until you are finished
To start the questionnaire, open the online tool (in Dutch). Keep in mind that you cannot save your answers in between questions. Therefore, fill in the questions when you have enough time. If you cannot complete all the questions, leave the web page open. You can continue where you left off at a later time. If you close the web page, the session will end and you will have to complete all the questions again.
