Selection order for dismissals and layoffs in detail

There is no statutory selection order for dismissals under Czech law. However, employers must abide by the rules concerning equal treatment and non-discrimination.

In practice, employers must inform employees of the proposed selection criteria for employees to be made redundant. Negotiations must be held with employee representatives with the aim of reaching an agreement. The employer must inform the Labour Office of the criteria used and submit a written report on the decision on the collective redundancy and on the results of negotiations with employees.
