Dear clients and business partners,

in the last weeks and days, we all notice the negative effects of the coronavirus pandemic situation to the industry and economics both in the Czech Republic and worldwide. Individual corporations decrease their production, partially or fully close their enterprises, that in turn negatively effects also their suppliers.

On the meeting on 23 March 2020, the Czech government adopted measures extending the prohibition of free movement of people in public areas, and simultaneously adopted a “governmental package” of measures to support production companies.

This newsletter summarizes the substance of this governmental package with regard to the individual possible regimes how to treat the employees, and corresponding options how to obtain relevant state subsidy, which is in the range of 50-80 % of the labour costs per employee by the type of the regime.

The RD Legal team together with our cooperating accountants and tax advisors, is ready to deliver a complete “turn-key” solution – from implementation of individual measures to preparation of respective applications for the state costs reimbursement.

For any queries, we stay available on our hotline at +420 778 405 350.

Dear clients and business partners,

Considering further development of the pandemic caused by coronavirus (COVID-19) the government is taking stricter measures every day that affect our lives more and more intensively.

On 14 March 2020, with effect until 24 March 2020, the government has prohibited retail trade and sale of services in business premises with certain exceptions.
The day after, again with effect until 24 March 2020, the government has prohibited free movement of persons throughout the whole territory of the Czech Republic, with certain exceptions - especially travel to work and back home, purchase of food, necessary visit of the family, but also a walk in the nature.

With regard to the seriousness of these measures we would like to provide you with a short overview of their content and their impact on your everyday professional and personal life.

Should you have any question, please, do not hesitate to contact us at our information hotline, at +420 778 405 353. We are ready to advise you how to proceed in accordance with applicable law in your current situation.

Dear clients and business partners,

the coronavirus (COVID-19) became nowadays the most current topic, affecting both personal and professional life, of every one of us, including the relations between employers and their employees.

It´s difficult to orientate in expert statements about actual effects of the coronavirus on individual’s health. However, the fact, that the coronavirus had been declared as pandemic by the WHO (World Health Organisation) cannot be ignored. Following the declaration, governments around the world are restricting movement of citizens, closing borders and taking further measures to avoid further spreading of the virus.

In these conditions, questions and situations which require reactions from employers are arising on daily basis.

The most common situations are described below. At the same time, regarding the seriousness of the problem, we established information hotline, at +420 778 405 353.
We are ready to advise you how to proceed in accordance with applicable law in your current situation.
