What we do
The purpose of these certifications is to be transparent. As a client, you can therefore be certain that we fulfil all our obligations, including verification of identity, checking whether a worker has a work permit, and paying the relevant taxes on time. The companies behind these certifications control these steps to ensure that your experience with us is transparent and positive.
Companies often fear chain liability, and rightly so! Chain liability means that when you hire workers through an employment agency, you can be held liable for any overdue wage costs, payroll tax, or unpaid turnover tax. To exclude chain liability, IFJ has obtained various certifications. The independent parties that issue these certifications check that IFJ complies with these rules to prevent chain liability. Thanks to these certifications, IFJ is one of the most reliable partners in the temporary employment sector.

Stichting Normering Flex Wonen (the Foundation for flexible housing standards) was established following the National Declaration on the Temporary Housing of Migrant Workers, which was signed on 28 March 2012 by a large number of signatories, such as the Minister of the Interior, the VNG (Association of Netherlands Municipalities), the Aedes Association of Housing Corporations, ABU (the largest association of Dutch private employment agencies), the NBBU, VIA, LTO Nederland, Productschap Vee en Vlees, the Christian National Trade Union Federation (CNV), the FNV (Federation of Dutch Trade Unions), the Polish Consultation Platform in the Netherlands and various municipalities.
The signatories have, among other things, committed to making an effort to establish standards for good housing in collective bargaining agreements and in certification, and to set up a system to enforce these standards that inspires trust.
This certification is proof that we meet the standard for housing for migrant workers.
