The Czech President has signed a law amending the rules for registering foreigners with temporary protection. As of 1 April 2023, employers will be obliged to notify the start of employment of a foreigner with temporary protection even in cases where the foreigner does not become eligible for sickness insurance. This includes income from agreement on the performance of work of up to CZK 10,000 per month or income from small-scale employment (main employment relationship or agreement on work activities) of less than CZK 4,000 per month.
The deadline for registration is the standard 8 calendar days from the start of employment. If a foreigner with temporary protection started employment before 1 April 2023 and his/her employment is not terminated within 30 calendar days after that date, the obligation to register the employee also applies retroactively, within the beforementioned 30 days.
In conclusion, the law does not mention any change in the registration for health insurance, which is in fact linked to the creation of sickness insurance in the case of agreement on the performance of work and agreement on work activities.
