Although it is not compulsory, most companies in The Netherlands reimburse the cost for your daily commuting to work. The policy regarding the amount to be compensated for public and private transport varies from company to company.
When travelling by private transport it is common to receive €0.19 cents per KM up to a certain KM distance per day. The KM distance per day is once again decided by the company. When travelling by public transport companies request invoices/receipts of your travel costs. The policy regarding travel expenses will be stated in your Assignment that you sign with us.
Travel expense payments
When working for Abroad Experience in Phase A of a temporary contract, you (the Temporary Employee) are only paid for the hours actually worked. For every worked hour you will accumulate reservations (additional income). The size of the reserves is shown on the payslip that you will receive after every 4 week payment period.
When you sign the contract with Abroad Experience, you will receive time sheets that should be completed and sent to Abroad Experience on a weekly basis. The salary will only be paid out if the timesheets have been signed by the “Hirer” (your direct manager or team leader) and have been received by Abroad Experience. Abroad Experience can take no responsibility for non/late payment when the timesheets have not been received on time.
Before starting as a temporary employee at Abroad Experience, you will receive an employment contract and a corresponding assignment sheet which outlines all the relevant information regarding starting date, salary, work location, travel allowance, etc.
Abroad Experience works in accordance with the (ABU) CAO Collective Agreement for Temporary Employees working in The Netherlands between the periods of 2017-2019 The Collective Employment agreement between CAO parties provides an overview of the most important rights and duties of the agency/temporary employee.
