Legal news for 2022

The next covid year 2021 was indeed turbulent. Aside from the virus itself, it brought an increase in inflation and a rise in prices nearly everywhere, and the collapse of several energy suppliers at the end. It is not only in the wake of these events that we will see a number of legal changes and innovations in the year ahead.

What’s new in employment law?

Wages and salaries

The positive news for most public sector employees is the increase in salaries. Most of them are scheduled to receive an increase of CZK 1,400 on January 1, 2022. The increase also applies to soldiers, police officers, and other members of the armed forces.

The minimum wage will also rise by CZK 1,000 to CZK 16,200 per month gross. However, this affects not only low-income employees who are paid this wage level. Along with this, the so-called guaranteed wage, which is the basis for other professions in the private sector, will also increase. It is graded according to the complexity, responsibility, and difficulty of the work into eight levels.

The increase in the minimum wage will also affect other amounts, such as additional earnings for jobseekers, childcare allowance, and eligibility for a tax bonus.

Paternity leave

Paternity leave is paid leave to allow dads to help their wives or significant others care for their newborn child. Now the father of the child is entitled to a week off within six weeks of the birth. In 2022, fathers can enjoy up to 14 days of this leave. The change is brought about by an amendment to the Sickness Insurance Act.

What will 2022 bring for traders and entrepreneurs?

On the contrary, the beginning of the year will not bring much joy for traders. Next year, there will be a significant year-on-year increase in minimum social and health insurance contributions. Minimum advances for social and health insurance will increase by almost CZK 500 per month, namely by CZK 487.

Real Estate 

First of all, we all pay a premium in real estate. Not only are house prices and building work rising, but rising interest rates have also caused mortgage rates to increase substantially. Of course, this not only affects people who are newly looking to buy their own home, but also those who will be coming to the end of their mortgage fixation in the coming year and will be arranging a continuation.

Reviews of the Dostupný advokát service

I work as a self-employed craftsman and I know my field very well. Unexpected events happen, however, and I sometimes have to deal with problems where I need quality legal advice. I don’t like calling legal offices, getting sucked into discussions with terms I don’t understand. Dostupnyadvokat.cz is different. My first time, they replied immediately (zobrazit více) and together we created a contract custom tailored to my exact needs. I continue to be very happy with both their work and their price.

Dostupný advokát updated the terms of a contract for our web portal studentino.cz, to insure that they were in strict accordance with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). The entire process was done online and for reasonable price.

I felt very uncomfortable meeting an attorney in person. But Dostupný advokát managed to solve everything for me online. I bought a consultation because my employer had sent me for a long term business trip to an exotic country with no explanation, and I wanted to be sure what my rights in this situation were. (zobrazit více) The Skype consultation was very pleasant and the service was fast. I can fully recommend them.
