Central and eastern European HR - employment law in the Czech Republic and Slovakia

Who should attend

This course is relevant to international HR managers, directors with responsibility for employees in Czech Republic and Slovakia and in-house employment lawyers. It will also be useful to managers and directors who anticipate entering the Czech and/or Slovak market and who need to be aware of their responsibilities to their people.


Formerly a single country, the Czech and Slovak employment laws have drifted apart since the 90’s, while keeping many similar concepts. Similarities include vigorous protection of employees as the weaker party, strict formalities for hiring and difficult terminations with a risk of reinstatement and substantial compensation for the employee.

Led by an award-winning team of Czech and Slovak employment lawyers, this course aimed at regional positions provides a tailored no-nonsense introduction to key HR issues in the Czech Republic and Slovakia and arm you with awareness of likely pitfalls so that you are not caught out.

Delegates will gain an insight into

  • overview of the most important current employment issues
  • common mistakes and misunderstandings by foreign managers
  • cultural issues and differences in expectations
  • insight into the life on the ground – the difference between the law and the reality
