If the UWV denies your WW request, even though you do have WW rights, then that's probably the result of miscommunication. You are entitled to a WW benefit if:

  • You have worked for a minimum of 26 weeks during the last 36 weeks. This counts for the work you've done at JAM!, but also at previous employers.
  • It's not your fault that you became unemployed. Self-evidently, that's the case in this situation. That's why you've received an End of Commission (Einde Opdracht) letter from us.
  • You have worked more than 10 hours per week, and this has declined by a minimum of 5 work hours. There's a big chance that all of your hours have declined.
  • You have worked for less than 10 per week, and this has declined by at least 50%. Also in this situation, there's a big chance that all of your hours have declined.
  • You're available to work. That makes sense. Realistically, there won't be much work for you at the moment. Of course, this changes once the hospitality sector can open its doors again.
If the UWV says that you need to be included in the NOW regulation (the Temporary Emergency Bridging Measure for Sustained Employment), then this is incorrect. That's why we ask you to request a WW benefit. If the UWV says that your employer JAM! needs to continue paying you your average of working hours from the past 13 weeks, then this is also incorrect. There is an exclusion from obligatory continued payment of salary in the contracts. This entails that if there's no work, there will be no payment. 

We have written an objection letter for you. You can use this letter, which is attached to this email, to object your denied WW benefit. The rejection letter that the UWV sent you, contains the address that you can send your objection letter to. There's also an option to object online via https://www.uwv.nl/particulieren/formulieren/bezwaar-maken-tegen-een-beslissing.aspx
