FAQ – post 12

I have residence in the Czech Republic and an employment contract for two years. The employer has threatened me that if I leave, I will have to pay him the costs of arrangement, visa, travel… Does he have the right to do so?

You have the right to terminate your employment according to the Czech Labour Code, and no one can force you to stay with your employer. Regarding the payment of costs to the employer, it depends on what commitments you have signed. You better consult with a lawyer on your situation – do not hesitate to contact our SOS line to get advice.
