The Supreme Court of the Czech Republic held that employer's decision to ensure its work needs by independent contractors instead of employees was a legitimate organizational measure which could lead to employee's redundancy and, thus, justify termination of the employment by employer's notice. This legal opinion was expressed in the Judgment of the Supreme Court of 29 January 2020 (21 Cdo 2128/2019), published in the Collection of Court Judgments and Opinions of the Czech Republic under No. 88/2020. The case concerned an employee who was an opera singer, however – basically – there is no reason not to apply the conclusions also in other labor fields (of course on the condition that there is no dependent work pursuant to section 2 of the Act No. 262/2006 Coll., the Labor Code, as amended, which must be performed within employment or other basic labor relationship).
