About this course

This knowledge concerns a solid and necessary basis for Senior Payroll Administrators and HR employees.

In this part of the training, the Cessantia National Ordinance is reviewed and explained in a simple manner, in which rules are determined about the employer's obligation to pay a one-off financial benefit at the end of an employment contract. You will also learn how to legally avoid this obligatory payment and a calculation will be made of a gross Cessantia lumpsum based on the legislation.

  • When is an employee entitled to a Cessantia benefit and when not?
  • How much is the Cessantia benefit?  
  • What is the limitation period?

  • How do you determine the annual employer contribution?
