Each year, over 200,000 employees in the Netherlands are affected by injuries and absenteeism due to occupational accidents. An estimated 25,000 employees are affected by occupational diseases. Employees seeking to recover the resulting financial losses are forced to hold their employer liable. In practice, this process involves major legal woes. The trade union movement and Social and Economic Council (SER) have advocated for the introduction of a new system, known as employee compensation. In addition to its compensatory function, this system should also serve a preventive role. Wim Eshuis reports on the preventive qualities of four different employee compensation systems.
