The UWV must be a self-employed entrepreneur who in 2005 had a baby will still compensate for a benefit that they previously were not given because they are temporarily not able to work.

That certain of the district court Midden-Nederland Monday.

The woman felt aggrieved because there between mid 2004 and 2008, there were no maternity or allowance for female self-employed workers existed. While this arrangement in the years before and afterwards, was.

The woman fought the case earlier up to the High Council, but was getting zero sleep. Then she served with five other women filed a complaint with the committee that oversees the implementation of the VN-vrouwenverdrag (CEDAW). That enabled the women to be in the right.

With this judgment in hand, fought the entrepreneur the case again and won this time. “The court is of the opinion that the UWV, the VN-vrouwenverdrag has violated. The woman will therefore have to be offset with a benefit or compensatory damages.”

Umbrella ZZP Nederland is pleased with the ruling. “There was a piece of injustice”, said a spokesman. “Four years, there was no benefit for these women, while before and afterwards, however it was arranged. I can imagine that more women rely on this ruling can do, but there are still no statements about to do. We will follow this case closely.”
