The Czech Republic - employment and social affairs

Short-term priorities

  • creating a national strategy with a view to subsequent participation in the European employment strategy;
  • supporting the social partners' efforts to equip themselves with the necessary capacity to develop and implement the acquis.

Assessment (November 2000)

This priority has been largely observed. A national employment plan is in place. The social dialogue has improved, particularly within industry.

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Medium-term priorities

  • setting up of appropriate job market structures and joint assessment of employment policies with the prospect of participating in European coordination;
  • aligning labour law and legislation on health and job security;
  • setting up control structures, (quickly adopting the framework directive on health and safety of workers);
  • applying the principle of equal opportunities between men and women;
  • continuing to develop active, autonomous social dialogue;
  • continuing to develop social welfare;
  • efforts to align the public health system with European standards.

Evaluation (October 1999)

Preparations for the joint examination of employment policies are continuing in a satisfactory manner. Progress has been made concerning the alignment of legislation on equal opportunities.

Assessment (November 2000)

Progress has been made in transposing the social security acquis. Alignment has been improved in the areas of working time and collective redundancies. Legislation has been adopted on equal opportunities, gender discrimination, parental leave, remuneration, people with disabilities and public health. Initial steps have been taken to set up a state monitoring system on health and safety in the workplace.

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Following the signing of the Accession Treaty on 16 April 2003, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia acceded to the European Union on 1 May 2004.
