Summer and temporary jobs: what about the contract

During the summer there are plenty of summer jobs and interesting earnings available. Is it possible to negotiate a contract for such a relationship? How does it work and what are the pitfalls?

Temporary employment on the FTE

Previously, a work performance agreement could only be used to perform a one-off task. If it was a regular or long-term job, it was stated that a work performance agreement could not be negotiated. However, this is no longer the case. Now you can also negotiate a performance agreement if you perform the same activity for your employer repeatedly – for example, guiding visitors around a castle or chateau. The only restriction is that you cannot work more than 300 hours per calendar year for one employer under this type of agreement. After that, another type of contract must be negotiated – for example, an employment agreement.

If you are paid up to 10,000, you do not pay health and social security

The biggest advantage of a work performance agreement is that if you earn less than CZK 10,000 per month, you will only pay withholding tax and will not have to pay health or social security.

Working hours depend on agreement

If you don’t agree anything else in the work agreement, it will always be up to both parties to agree when you work and when you take time off (only some restrictions apply, for example on the length of working hours). However, if you agree to a clause whereby you agree to come to work, for example, every weekday, then this arrangement will of course apply.

Pitfalls: early termination of the agreement

The law also does not specify how the agreement can be terminated early. Particularly if you “commit” your employer in the contract to work for a certain period of time or to a certain extent, it would be a good idea to agree on a procedure in case you or the employer later decide to go your own way. For example, agree that your agreement to carry out the work can be terminated with a notice period you specify, even without giving a reason. If the method of termination is not agreed, it can be terminated by giving 15 days’ notice.

Negotiate remuneration as part of the agreement

You should not forget about your remuneration arrangements. It is in your interest that the amount of the remuneration is set out in the agreement so that you do not have any unpleasant surprises later. Minimum wage rules also apply to performance agreements: your employer must not pay you less than CZK 73.20 per hour.

Reviews of the Dostupný advokát service

before 3 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.

I had no idea that there was an online service that could arrange all your legal paperwork for you. I’m so glad I found your service! Using Dostupny Advokat gives me the time to enjoy with my family and loved ones, instead of hassling with legal issues I don’t fully grasp.

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.
