Checklist: Dismissal



About the Dismissal Checklist

Belgium is ranked one of the most expensive countries when it comes to dismissal costs. In addition, errors made during the termination procedure can substantially increase an employer’s costs. There are several ways of terminating an employment contract and the price tag varies according to the method of dismissal. The exact cost of dismissal for you as an employer will depend on the case at hand. We at KPMG Law can be your one-stop shop for all dismissal related matters and any challenges your organization may face.


This practical checklist is intended to provide a useful outline of the most important items to consider regarding dismissals, and to point you, the employer, in the right direction.

Target audience

This practical checklist is intended for all employers – of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and large businesses alike – who employ individuals in Belgium, as well as for HR professionals and other managers working in human resources.
