Illegal employment in Czech Republic and in the European Union

    () (University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice)


The paper deals with illegal employment in the Czech Republic, both foreigners and citizens of the Czech Republic in comparison with other European Union countries. Illegal employment threatens the whole economy, weakening labor market and reducing the number of jobs for those who are unemployed and the job they are applying to the Labour Office. These negative phenomena in recent years is still widening, in connection with the liberalization of the economy and the influx of foreign capital. Definition of illegal work (the so-called undeclared work) in the Czech law only appeared in the Employment Act No. 435/2004 Coll., Effective 1 October 2004. Sometimes the term is narrowed only to the employment of foreigners without a residence permit, or without permission to work, but in its context includes the illegal employment of Czech citizens.
