Czech Republic, March 18 (BD) – “Foreigners with temporary protection are granted the same rights and obligations as foreigners with a permanent residence permit,” said Minister of Agriculture Zdeněk Nekula (KDU-ČSL), who represented party leader and Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Marian Jurečka, as quoted by the Czech news website

“These people will thus be able to use a wider portfolio of employment services in order to find a job in the labor market, so they will be able to become job seekers,” said Nekula.

President Milos Zeman signed the bill on Thursday.

“Senators today approved a bill proposed by Marian Jurecka, which will facilitate the employment of refugees from Ukraine and will open the door for them to receive a humanitarian benefit of CZK 5,000. Payment transfers could start on Monday,” said the Ministry of Labour on social media on Thursday afternoon.
