Evelien Jamaels is an associate in Crowell & Moring's Brussels office and a member of the firm's Labor & Employment Group.

Evelien’s practice mainly focuses on individual and collective labor law. She assists both national and international companies with their complex employment issues. These concern, for example, restructuring, closure of companies, termination of employment agreements, drafting and reviewing of employment agreements, work regulations and policies, drafting and negotiating Collective Bargaining Agreements, and audits/due diligence for multinationals. Evelien has also gained particular experience in the employment of non-EU workers in Belgium (work permit, visa, residency permit, etc.).

Evelien coaches law students from the Free University of Brussels and she is a member of the Social Law Department of this University. She also teaches as a visiting professor at the Brussels Erasmus Hogeschool and at the Regional training institute PIVO (Provinciaal Instituut voor Vorming en Opleiding van de provincie Vlaams-Brabant).

She is a regular contributor to the Dutch-language financial/economic magazine Trends. In this publication, Evelien responds to questions regarding Belgian and EU labor law that have been sent in by readers (for example, concerning flexible working time). Evelien also regularly posts on the Belgian website of FashionUnited, the international fashion industry network. Via these posts, Evelien informs companies in the fashion industry about legal trends and updates in the HR field, for instance about new rules on Sunday work.

Evelien is a member of the Editorial Board of the Flemish Bar.
