Pracovní právo

Employment law

Being an employer is not easy. A poorly written employment contract can cost you the rights to your employee’s work. A missing work schedule or undocumented security workshops can cause fines by the Employment Inspectorate. And a mishandled employment termination can cost vast amounts of money in the form of unpaid wages of the wrongfully terminated employee.

We can guide you through all the difficulties of employment law and help you avoid the above-mentioned situations.

Basic recruitment documents

Do you need help with employment agreement, work agreement (dohoda o provedení práce) or agreement on work performance (dohoda o pracovní činnosti)? Together we will plan out what your employees position and workload should be. We will also set up the proper documentation between you and the employees.
Employment agreement --> DPP/DPČ -->

Use of external employees

Given the lack of employees in the labour market, there may be a need to use external workforce. We will prepare or revise the necessary documentation, no matter who you contract.

Details -->

Home office

Working from home is becoming increasingly popular, but employers should not forget to set rules for it properly. The Labour Code makes little distinction between working in an office or at home. This should be reflected accordingly in said rules.

Details -->

Investments in staff development

Generally, employees should be improving on their skills. However, if you are going to invest in expensive employee training, a qualification agreement could be useful. This sets out the terms and conditions of claiming the costs of the employee's skill development and in return the employee will remain employed for a set period of time (but no longer than 5 years).

Details -->

Protection against false self-employment (in Czech also known as “Švarc system”)

Collaboration with a self-employed person sounds like a great thing until the Labor Inspection Office comes along with a fine for illegal employment. To avoid this risk, we can help you set up the cooperation with your contractors in such a way that it really corresponds to a relationship between two independent entrepreneurs and therefore does not bear the characteristics of dependent work.

Details -->

Termination of employment and related disputes

A poorly reasoned or incorrectly delivered notice of termination of employment is invalid. And the associated costs can be really high (e.g., lost earnings, court costs). To avoid these risks, we'll assess your situation and recommend the safest way to terminate the employee.

Contact us -->

Non-competition clauses and the poaching of employees

You should make necessary preparations in case you encounter these issues. You wouldn't be the first to not know what non-compete and no-poaching agreements are and how to put them into practice in a fair and transparent way

Corporate law and legal assistance for Startups

We enjoy being in the world of new technologies, so we look for opportunities to help startups! Corporate law issues cut across the entirety of starting and managing a business. A startup entrepreneur must deal with them from the beginning, throughout the “life” of the company until its end. Protecting ideas and investments early in the life of any startup, along with a global go-to-market and marketing strategy, are absolutely crucial. Whether you need to make sure you’re complying with all legal requirements, or just need some relief from administrative hassles, we’re here for you!  

Establishment of a commercial company

We will discuss your business plans with you and advise you on the most suitable form of business in relation to the subject of the business, the current state of the business and your future business plans.

Employee Equity programmes (ESOP)

The richer the startups are in ideas, the poorer they tend to be (at least at the beginning) financially. This is one of the reasons why it is slowly becoming the norm to offer employees and other collaborators their share of the company. We can advise you on how to set up and implement Employee programmes correctly, as well as how to specify terms and conditions.

Details -->

 

Shareholders’ agreement (SHA)

For more complex ownership structures, it may be useful to regulate the relations between the partners by a separate (non-public) side agreement. We will draft and discuss the wording with you so that you are prepared for anything. Together we will always find the ideal solution.

Cooperation begins

Via email, phone, or any other arbitrary tool, we will arrange a meeting. The meeting can be online/in person where we will clarify all your needs and preferences.

After the meeting, we will send you additional questions and explain everything so that you understand the questions. You don't have to worry about us speaking to you in the language of Mordor, or any other incomprehensible language (or even the legal one). We make it a priority that you or your employees know exactly what issues are being addressed and, more importantly, why they are being addressed.

For now, don't you know what all you need to deal with? Maybe you will find the answer on our blog ↗.

We think for you

Once we have all the information from you, we think about an issues that might arise in your business. But we go further. We don't just stop at the wording of the paragraphs. We think about the implications for your business, look for risks that we can point out to you and evaluate it together.

If we find that there may be difficulties in your business, we will alert you immediately and take all the warnings into account in the preparation of the relevant documentation.

We understand that legal solutions must go hand in hand with your business.

We speak clearly

We'll prepare a first draft of the documentation and take all the risks into account.

We think that there is nothing worse than complex texts, so we will prepare the documentation in a clear, understandable way. We are able to write documents in a very friendly language, but also in a formal and legal style.

We will deliver the output according to your preferences. Do you prefer online document editing? Here is the link.

We can help you negotiate

So we've prepared the documentation. Now it is time to negotiate with your clients. We love our documents, but we understand that 10 lawyers have 100 opinions, so we'll help you find a compromise and talk openly with you during the negotiation about the risks that any changes pose.

Need to enter into a contract with the other party? We'll have your back and help you negotiate the contract.

Need to communicate with authorities, courts or other institutions? We will handle everything for you.

Your contract/documentation has been updated to version 2.0.

We know very well law evolves over time. At the same time, your needs, your way of doing business, your priorities evolve over time. We are here to change and modify anything at any time to suit your needs.

If there are significant legal changes, we think of you and reflect the changes in the documentation together. Every day we check the current status of amendments, changes, new regulations. If we find that something big is coming up that will upset the documentation we have prepared for you, we will notify you in advance. You can then decide whether to make the adjustment yourself or perhaps with us.

The important thing is to have updates turned on. And we turn them on automatically!
