Do you want to reduce your employees’ working hours? Do they disagree? This is a reason to make them redundant!

4. 3. 2015

Judgment of the Supreme Court of the Czech Republic dated 20 November 2014, Ref. No. 21 Cdo 4442/2013

If you want to reduce your employees working time (and thus, in most cases, to reduce their wages), you are entitled, in the event of their disagreement, to make such employees redundant. If an employee who performs work for an employer in the fixed weekly working hours system and whose work in this scope is not necessary for the employer in the following period refuses to enter into an agreement with the employer to change the content of the employment relationship in order to reduce his/her working hours, it will constitute a reason for termination of employment of such an employee, as specified in the provisions of Section 52 (c) of the Labour Code, because due to the employer's decision to reduce the number of employees such an employee has become redundant.
