When an employer owes wages

You are legally and contractually entitled to wages for the work you do, but what should you do if your employer owes you wages for a long time? Is it possible to give immediate notice? Read all about it in this article.

15 days after wages are due

If your employer owes you wages or any part of them more than 15 days after they are due, you can quit immediately. However, this does not mean that you can give immediate notice if your employer is only a week late.

It is not the due date you have in your employment contract that is taken into account, but the 15 days after the end of the month. So for August, you must be paid by the end of September at the latest, then 15 days run before the employer has the opportunity to settle the amount. However, if this is not done by 16 October, you can terminate your employment immediately.

You must give your notice immediately in writing. If you give your notice in this way, you are still entitled to two average monthly salaries. This is the salary you would have received during the two-month notice period.

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.

I lease and sublease properties professionally and have been working with Dostupný advokát regularly long term. I especially appreciate their reliability. I also admire the flexibility and professionalism of their online legal service. But what I value most is that they are always on top of the latest news. With Dostupný advokát I can feel (zobrazit více) confident because I know that my business is always covered.
