Entry of Foreigners into the Labour Market of the Czech Republic

Employment of foreigners by a domestic employer in the Czech Republic. The employment relationships between the foreigner and the employer are primarily governed by the Labour Code and related legislation, similarly to the governance of employment relationships of employees who are citizens of the Czech Republic. In the above events, however, the Labour Code allows governing the employment relationships between the employer and the employee differently, under the provisions of private international law. The terms of employment are also set out by the Employment Act, pursuant to which foreigners may be employed in the territory of the Czech Republic if they have obtained an employment permit, provided that such permits are required by the Employment Act, and a residence permit, or an Employee Card or a Blue Card.

The performance of work by foreigners posted to the territory of the Czech Republic by a foreign employer for the purpose of performing a contract entered into with a domestic legal or natural entity – the employment relationships between the foreign employer and the foreigner who is posted to carry out work are usually governed by the law of the country where the foreign employer has its registered office. The performance of work may begin if the foreigner has obtained an employment permit and a residence permit (i.e., an Employee Card within the meaning of § 42g, paragraph 3 of the Residency Act, which serves only as a permit for long-term residency in the Czech Republic).
