INTRODUCTION TO THE SYSTEM OF LAW
Introduction to the system of law (Continental versus Anglo-Saxon, private versus public), with all the essential legal facts as the starting point for further study. The status of national law in the context of EU law. Characteristics of the most important legal branches.
LAW OF OBLIGATIONS AND PREVENTION OF INDEBTEDNESS
Law of obligations in the context of private law, the contract as the most common reason for obligations, solidary obligations, pre-contractual liability, change of circumstances, disproportionate shortening, usury, basic principles of compensation for damages in private law, prevention of damages.
ENFORCEABILITY OF THE LAW
Illuminating the possibilities provided by the legal code with focus on prevention (faultlessness and completeness of contractual documents). Justice system – courts, public prosecutor's office, authorities active in criminal proceedings. Alternative options for dispute resolution (mediation). A few remarks on insolvency proceedings. Representation by a lawyer, legal service in the company and the possibilities of its organization.
CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION AND PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA
Protecting confidential information (trade secrets, know-how) in contracts, in acquisitions (due diligence) and in relation to employees, protecting personal data (including GDPR), from the point of view of internal company activities, sales of goods and services, and in business relations.
Protecting the reputation of a legal person and protecting individuals in media and marketing communication.
Media communication, external corporate communication, public appearances (press conferences, media). Marketing communication, business communication (advertising, sponsorship, product placement).
Trading companies are a legal construct (type of legal person) used to run a business effectively. Persons can associate in them for a common (business) goal and the relevant legislation offers individual schemes that ensure the proper operation of the company, i.e. the cooperation of its partners and competent and responsible management of their affairs. This ideal is, of course, difficult to monitor and fully fulfill in specific legal norms and in practice. Therefore, the new institutes of corporate law will be analyzed, the problematic aspects of regulating company activities will be explained, and the current judicature of the Supreme Court will be presented.
RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE MANAGER IN LABOR RELATIONS
Labor law is an integral part of management. General knowledge of this field of law is thus an elementary part of the comprehensive knowledge necessary to manage a company successfully. Within this study of labor law, you will acquire knowledge of the practical application of selected provisions of the Labor Code in labor law relations. In particular, pre-employment discussions and negotiations, changes to and termination of employment, as well as some issues related to holiday, working obstacles and compensation.
CRIMINAL LIABILITY OF THE MANAGER AND COMPANY
Knowledge of the basics of the criminal liability of companies and individuals is a prerequisite to successfully fill a managerial position without exposure to the unnecessary risks of possible criminal prosecution. The latest amendment to the law on the criminal liability of legal entities has significantly modified this area, on the one hand extending the possibility of criminal prosecution, with a few exceptions, to practically all criminal offenses, and on the other hand enabling the waiver of criminal liability under certain conditions. How to proceed in this regard and what preventive measures actually work in practice will be the content of the interpretation of this very current issue.
STATE AND EUROPEAN BUSINESS REGULATION
The free development of business activity is an important pillar of today's society. The right to do business is an important right protected at the constitutional level. Nevertheless, this right has a number of regulatory limits. Protecting the competitive environment, protecting the interests of consumers and other customers and protecting individuals concluding various contracts with entrepreneurs have called for the adoption and application of regulations that lay down limits for the behavior of entrepreneurs (competition law) in favor of increased protection for people with whom entrepreneurs enter into an obligation (special regulation of business obligations). The regulatory framework for doing business in the Czech Republic is strongly influenced by European law, which sets strict limits on entrepreneurial freedoms while at the same time creating space for the development of business activities protected from the arbitrary intervention of national legislators.
