Illegal work

Illegal work is the performance of dependent work by a natural person for an employer, whereby:

  • there is no employment relationship between the employer and the worker according to the Labour Code or a civil service relationship according to Act No 55/2017 Coll.,
  • the employer employs a worker who is not a national of a member state of the European Union, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein or Switzerland or who is stateless, in conflict with the conditions laid down in Section 21(1) of Act No 5/2004 Coll.

Work performed for a natural person engaged in business (e.g. self-employed) by their direct relative, sibling or spouse is not illegal work, provided that the direct relative, sibling or spouse:

  • has a pension insurance or
  • is a pensioner or
  • is a pupil or student under 26 years of age.
