What are the characteristics of the remuneration regulations?
The obligation to introduce remuneration regulations has every employer who jointly
fulfils the following conditions:
- employs at least 20 employees,
- is not covered by a company or supra-company collective agreement, allowing on its basis to determine the individual terms of employment contracts.
The group of „at least 20 employees” does not include persons performing work on a basis other than an employment relationship, e.g. a specific task contract, a mandate contract or a temporary employment contract.
The remuneration regulations are determined by the employer in consultation with the company’s trade union organization.
In the case of two or more trade unions, they must submit a common position to the employer within 30 days of the draft rules of procedure being submitted to them. If the company trade union organizations do not present a common position within the above-mentioned period, the employer may determine the remuneration regulations himself after considering the separate positions of individual trade union organizations.
The remuneration regulations cover all employees, regardless of the basis of employment, which may be an employment contract, appointment, election, appointment or cooperative employment contract.
In determining the total number of employees, no account shall be taken of staff whose remuneration cannot be specified in the regulations.
The following may not be covered by the remuneration regulations:
- employees managing the workplace on behalf of the employer, i.e. employees managing the workplace and their alternates alone or employees forming part of the collegiate governing body of the workplace and chief accountants;
- persons managing the workplace on a basis other than an employment relationship;

- at the request of the employee, make available for inspection the text of the regulations and explain their content.
The work regulations enter into force two weeks after the date of their notification to employees, in the manner adopted by the employer.
