CZECHIA: New Posted Worker Notification Requirements

The Czech authorities have updated the notification requirements for workers posted to Czechia by companies based in the EU.

Notification

The notification form must now be signed, stamped and submitted by the sending company, (rather than the host company as previously) by the day the assignment starts at the latest. The form can be submitted in person at the relevant labor office in Czechia or via email. The sending entity is also required to announce termination of the posting within ten calendar days.

Posting of employees in the international transport sector, however, does not need to be notified.

Document Retention

The sending company is obliged to maintain evidence of the posted worker’s personal data.  The host company must keep a copy of the posted worker’s home-company employment contract, translated into Czech, at the workplace.
