Dutch team members get the customary month of vacation money (Vakantiegeld) in the month of May, as defined by the government. Note that Vakantiegeld is built into offers as well as our Compensation Calculator.
Note that you can choose to have your vacation money distributed throughout the year. To request a change in the way you receive this, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. This template should be completed by a member of the People Operations Specialist team, signed by GitLab and the team member and then send to HRSavvy to request the change.
There is no additional medical coverage scheme through GitLab.
Note that in the Netherlands every citizen is obliged to have at least a basic health insurance package (basisverzekering) with a health insurance company. If you do not have health insurance, you can be fined by the Sociale Verzekeringsbank.
GitLab does not plan on adding additional medical cover at this time due to the governmental cover.
State pension (AOW) is standard and will be paid out at retirement age. Starting January 1, 2021, GitLab will offer a private pension plan through Brand New Day for all team members over the age of 21 employed via a GitLab BV Netherlands employment contract. The pension plan will be a Defined Contribution Agreement with a flat rate of 3.00% of the pension base. The GitLab team member will contribute 2%, with the employer (GitLab) contributing 1%. The pension base equals the pensionable salary less the state pension offset.
Pension Plan Summary:
Voluntary Pension Plan Summary:
Individual value transfer: A team member can have the pension value accrued at a former employer transferred to Brand New Day. An individual value transfer must be requested from Brand New Day within six months of joining the scheme. Once this is complete, the years of service at any former employers count towards Death Benefits.
Investment Profile: Team members choose their own investment profile: neutral, defensive or offensive or their own mix of equities and bonds, within the limits set by Brand New Day. Furthermore, you can choose to put all the contributions in a savings fund.
If a team member does not want to participate in the GitLab BV (Netherlands) Pension Plan, they can submit a waiver to
email@example.com using the following form to not take part in the pension scheme. In doing so, your partner will also need to sign this waiver agreement. If your partner changes, your new partner will also need to sign a new waiver. You may not be able to enroll after filing for a waiver in the future due to the pension provider's policies.
GitLab does not offer life insurance in the Netherlands at this time. Team members are automatically covered up to 70% of their last wage in case of disability by the governmental Employee Insurance Agency.
Vacationin PTO by Roots to ensure that vacation entitlement is properly tracked.
People Ops will consult with HRSavvy to ensure that the statute is met.
HRSavvy can assist in applying for maternity leave covered by social security. In this application the company can decide whether the benefit is paid to the team member directly, or the employer continues paying the salary and receives the benefit. The last option is done in most of the cases.
