Employment Laws

Employment contracts in the Czech Republic

It is a legal requirement to provide your employees in the Czech Republic with a formal contract of employment, including all relevant details of the employment agreement such as salary/wage, parental leave allowance, sick pay, working hours, and so on. It should also be written in Czech and use the Czech koruna currency.

By partnering with our Czech Republic PEO, Horizons’ team of local experts can provide assistance for drafting strong employment contracts that are compliant with local regulations.

Working hours in Czech Republic

Normal working hours in the Czech Republic are 40 hours per week. Czechs have a tendency to start work earlier than most cultures, with 7am start being common. However, this is not legally required, and many foreign-owned organizations do not enforce it.

Work beyond 40 hours per week needs to be compensated at overtime rates, which are at least 125% of normal pay.

Vacation leave in the Czech Republic

Employers in the Czech Republic must provide their employees with at least 20 days of vacation leave every year. Many organizations offer more as part of their benefits packages, and employees may want to negotiate extra during the hiring process.

Czech Republic has a range of national public holidays that are celebrated annually. In 2023 these holidays are:
Date New Year’s Day
1 Jan, 2023 New Year’s Day

Sick leave in the Czech Republic

Employers in the Czech Republic are not legally required to pay employees for the first three days of absence through sickness. After the third day (up to 21 days), employers must provide 60% of normal salary. Beyond this (and up to 380 days of absence), payments to employees are state-funded

Parental leave in the Czech Republic

Female employees can take a minimum of 28 weeks of parental leave. This can be extended to 37 weeks for births of more than one child. 70% of her usual salary will be covered by the state. There is also additional financial support available from the state.

Terminations and severance in the Czech Republic

Employees and employers must provide a minimum of two months of notice when terminating an employment contract. This does not apply in probation periods, which can last for up to three months.

Severance pay may be required if an employee is terminated without proper cause. For employees who have been with a company for under one year, severance of one month of salary must be paid. For employees of between one and two years, severance rises to two months of salary. For employees of more than two years, the minimum payment is three months of salary.

Navigating employee terminations and handling severance packages can be complicated for companies expanding overseas for the first time. Horizons’ Czech Republic PEO can mitigate risk for foreign companies and provide guidance through this process. 

Taxation in the Czech Republic

Employers in the Czech Republic are required to pay 25% of employee salaries to social security schemes, with a cap on maximum payments.

Income tax in the Czech Republic is charged at a rate of 15%, but employees are also required to pay a 7% ‘solidarity tax’, which was introduced in 2013.

The Czech Republic’s corporate tax rate is 19%

Health coverage in the Czech Republic

Employers must pay 9% of employee salaries to the national health insurance fund. Besides this, some employers may choose to offer private health insurance as part of their benefits packages.

Compensation laws in the Czech Republic

Benefit management in the Czech Republic

Managing your benefits packages as an employer in the Czech Republic may include setting up things like health insurance, pension contributions, parental leave payments, and so on.

Establishing and running a benefits system for your Czech employees can be difficult as a foreign company, and you will need to be familiar with the country’s customs and labor laws. The process can take a long time to establish, so we advise getting professional advice if you are unsure.

Horizons can simplify your Czech Republic benefits management, with our Czech Republic experts setting up and managing everything for you and helping you focus on a successful expansion operation.

A Czech Republic PEO and a Czech Republic EOR are two types of companies which specialize in providing human resources services to businesses in Czech Republic.

The main difference between a Czech Republic PEO and a Czech Republic EOR is in the scope of their services.

Czech Republic PEOs provide a full range of HR services, including payroll, benefits administration, and employee recruiting—all under one roof as a co-employer. Engaging a Czech Republic PEO is essentially outsourcing your HR duties in Czech Republic.

Czech Republic EORs actually take over as the legal employer of your employees based abroad. Czech Republic EORs become responsible for labor compliance for your employees in Czech Republic.

At Horizons, we offer both PEO and EOR services in Czech Republic. Get in touch now and let us know what service you are seeking.

A PEO in Czech Republic can feasibly hire both local and foreign nationals to work in Czech Republic.

However, the ability of Horizons to sponsor your foreign national employee in Czech Republic may be limited due to visa quotas practiced in many countries.

Contact us with your requirements and our Global Mobility team with review the case and get back to you within 2 business days.

In most cases, Horizons’ Czech Republic PEO can hire & onboard your employee within 24 hours. The actual start date of the employee will depend on their notice period obligation to their previous employer as well as any relevant hiring rules in Czech Republic.

It is possible to get a work visa in Czech Republic. Horizons’ Global Mobility team is a dedicated team of work visa experts. They assess the details of each case to determine feasibility and costs before Horizons applies for the work visa on behalf of your employee. If the Global Mobility team determines that your case is feasible, the process is smooth and transparent. Visa spots in Czech Republic are limited, however—get started today to secure your employees’ visa spot.
