Report: Labour Ministry mulls lifting all restrictions on time-limited employment contracts

The Czech Labour and Social Affairs Ministry is considering removing all restrictions on time-limited employment contracts, the news website reported on Thursday. Under current Czech labour law, employers can only offer temporary employment contracts for a maximum period of two years. After that, they have to offer their employees permanent contracts. Labour and Social Affairs Minister Jaromír Drabek is now planning to remove the restrictions altogether although the centre-right government’s policy originally only included the extension of this limit to five years.
