New book publication by the Slovak team of Dvořák Hager & Partners
The team from the Slovak office of Dvořák Hager & Partners has published a new book entitled: The Law on Cross-border Cooperation in the Posting of Employees. The book's co-authors (Bernhard Hager, Jana Sapáková, Natália Jánošková and Katarína Liebscherová) set out to prepare a comprehensive commentary to the law (Act No. 351/2015 Coll., on Cross-border Cooperation in the Posting of Employees to Perform Work in the Provision of Services). Readers will therefore receive an objective interpretation and description of individual provisions. The book can also serve as a guide for domestic and foreign employers to meet the obligations imposed by the law. It also provides practical examples in which the authors illustrate specific situations for a better understanding of the issues. The book is intended primarily for entrepreneurs, employers, corporate executives and HR staff. Of course, we also recommend it to the general professional public.
