The KSČM’s proposal to extend the statutory leave for employees by at least one week is at least in the House for final approval. In Friday’s repeated second reading, the authors proposed some adjustments and a postponement of effect to January next year. Deputies are expected to vote on an amendment to the Labor Code in March. The Social Committee has previously recommended that it be rejected.
Last December, the House returned the draft to the second reading at the request of the Communists. Even then, they announced that they would want an annual postponement of effectiveness due to the worsening economic situation caused by the coronavirus crisis. The amendment also aligns the amendment with the current wording of the Labor Code.
The Communists are defending the extension of the basic leave by arguing that employees whose remuneration depends on the state budget can draw five weeks a year now. According to them, the current legislation harms other employees. Opponents, on the other hand, point to the negative views of employers due to rising costs.
The possibility of extending the basic area of leave allowed by the employer would be left to the draft KSČM. It would not change the length of eight weeks’ leave for teachers and academics at universities.
