How to earn extra money on maternity leave

Maternity leave and its benefits are intended to allow the mother to concentrate on looking after herself and her child, so you cannot take the benefit and continue working. However, is it possible to earn extra money?

You must not do the same job as before maternity leave

If you don’t want to lose your maternity pay, be careful when working for your current employer. You can only contract with them for a different job. For example, an accountant will be able to take on a contract for ‘administrative work’ but must not do the work of an accountant again, even if it is part-time.

Consent for another company

You can take the same job with another employer, but the original employer must give you written consent. However, this restriction does not apply to scientific, teaching, journalistic, literary or artistic activities.

Entrepreneurship on maternity leave

If you were running a business and paying for your health insurance before you went on maternity leave, you cannot continue to run the business personally. The only possible solution is to find an employee.

However, if the business was only a sideline to employment, maternity leave will not affect this and so you can continue it without any restrictions.

Parental leave

There are far fewer restrictions on parental leave. You can carry on any gainful activity quite freely. You can join your previous employer or find other employment.

You don’t have to give notice to quit the job you are holding and plan to return to after your parental leave.

The only thing you need to make sure you don’t lose your parental allowance is proper supervision of your child. Just make arrangements with the grandparents, arrange a nanny or use a day nursery. However, children under the age of two can spend a maximum of 46 hours a month in a nursery or kindergarten.

My grandparents wanted to give me an apartment, but I was extremely busy at the time and couldn’t afford to put any time into finding out what I needed to do. I also had no idea how to get the transfer of ownership handled at the Land Registry. Dostupný advokát arranged everything for me, and (zobrazit více) the apartment transfer was legally arranged with no issues. Thank you and thumbs up!

Your reputation is well deserved. All our contracts were done quickly and accurately. In addition, Dostupný advokát explained the legal regulations for our property easement, which I found critical to our success because as a layman I had no idea what problems that could cause us. I have no suggestions for improving your service, because (zobrazit více) I am completely satisfied.

before 4 years

I decided to withdraw from my operating lease prematurely and was charged a ridiculously high penalty, apparently because the car had been sold for a significantly lower price than its market value. I found it frustrating, so I turned to Dostupný advokát for help. They got to work on the case very fast and recommended (zobrazit více) several options on how to proceed. They also helped me prepare all necessary documentation. Thanks to them, I had to pay only a fraction of the original amount and saved tens of thousands of Crowns.
