An article by JUDr. Jiří Ctibor has been published in the March issue of Právní rádce. He writes about a decision, made by an American government institution for the protection of employees, which brought significant uncertainty into the franchising world. The decision changes the existing concept of so-called ‘joint employment’ and puts entities which only indirectly control employees into the position of employers. The decision initially applies only to agency employment but may eventually also relate to franchising. In his article, JUDr. Ctibor thus deals with the prospective practical impact on Czech decision-making.
