Sick days

During the first 14 days of sickness, the employee is entitled to 60% of their daily pay, as long as the employee meets the eligibility requirements.

Paternity leave

In the first seven weeks, new fathers will take leave in place of the mother.

The mother is entitled to parental leave until her maternity leave ends, and the father is entitled to leave from the birth of the infant before the child hits the age of three. This leave is only available while the infant is cared for at home.

Parents are entitled to a cumulative payment of 220,000 CZK before their child is four years old, or 330,000 CZK if they have several children.
