ILS Lunch Seminar with Hanneke Bennaars and Prof. Frans Sonneveldt
The monthly ILS Lunch seminars bring together colleagues and students from Leiden Law School, providing an informal setting to hear what researchers from other research programs and institutes are working on. On Thursday 17 October 2019, a new edition of the ILS Lunch Seminars takes place. This month, Hanneke Bennaars and Prof. Frans Sonneveldt will present their current research.
Hanneke Bennaars is an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Public law, focusing on labour law and social security. During this ILS Lunch Seminar, she will give a presentation titled “Does platformwork causes a paradigm shift in labour law?” Platform work is everywhere, has many different faces and leads to various legal questions. From a labour law perspective, the classification of the working relationship between a platform and the worker is often debated. Platform work also is a next step in a long observed trend of flexibilisation of the labour market and the rise of self-employed workers. In this presentation, Bennaars aims to give an overview of recent developments and pending research questions regarding platform work in a labour law context.
The second presentation will be given by Prof. Frans Sonneveldt, Professor of (International) Estate Planning at the Institute of Private law, focusing on Notorial Law. His presentation will focus on: “The elimination of double taxation of estates, inheritances and gifts within and outside the European Union.” Together with Frederique M. Richelle, Sonneveldt published the Dutch country report as a result of discussions which took place in the framework of the 2010 Rome Congress of the International Fiscal Association. Moreover, he was involved as an expert in an expert group which tried to come up with solutions to remove inheritance tax problems facing individuals who are active across borders within the EU (Ways to tackle inheritance cross-border tax obstacles facing individuals within the EU, Report of expert group, 2015). As far as his research outside the Union is concerned, Sonneveldt will focus on how double or multiple taxation can be removed by concluding double taxation conventions and by improving unilateral relief mechanisms.
This ILS Lunch Seminar will take place on Thursday 17 October 2019, from 13:00 until 14:00 hrs. in KOG A0.08. Lunch is provided and there is no need to register, just join!
