The new amendment to the Labour Code brought changes in the area of employees’ catering. Approved
wording of § 152 of the Labor Code changed the obligation of the employer to provide catering to his
employees during work. Change with effect from 01.03.2021 as follows:

  1. Meal vouchers are provided in electronic form (in case where the employer provides the employee
    with meal vouchers).
  2. An employer who does not provide catering in his own catering facility or in the catering facility of
    another employer is obliged to allow employees to choose between a meal voucher or a financial
    contribution for catering.
  3. The chosen method of catering is valid for the next 12 months from the day of selection.
  4. If the employee fails to make a decision, the employer shall decide about the form of catering.
  5. The amount of the financial contribution for catering shall be determined in a manner similar to the
    amount of the contribution for meal vouchers. Therefore, the benefit for the employee remains the same.
