Organisations with a workforce of 50 employees or more must have a works council (WoCo). A WoCo is an employee participation and co-determination body within an organisation and its members are employees who consult with the employer on behalf of the staff about company policy and employee interests. The Works Councils Act (Wet op de ondernemingsraden) establishes the rights and duties of the Works Council.
