3. METHODS OF SUBMISSION
The following delivery options are available for the electronic submission of forms:
• via the data box information system
• by sending an e-mail
Another option is to submit the printed form to the relevant branch of the Labour Office of the Czech Republic.
SENDING BY DATA BOX
All forms can also be sent to the office using a system of data boxes. The data box is an electronic repository with which you can send official documents in electronic form to public authorities. This method of communication is in accordance with Act 300/2008 Coll. and fully replaces the classic method of delivery in paper form.
To send forms from the data box, you do not need to have a qualified certificate as an individual, which is necessary for electronic submission - you only need to apply for a (free) creation of a data box. The procedure for setting up a data box and other information about data boxes can be found on the information website about data boxes.
In this case, fill in the form, download it to the local repository and after filling it in, send it in the form of an attachment via your data box to the appropriate address of the regional branch of the Labour Office of the Czech Republic. Contacts
BY SENDING AN E-MAIL MESSAGE TO THE ADDRESS OF THE ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION
Forms can also be sent via email. In this case, the form is attached as an attachment and this e-mail must contain a valid electronic signature. E-mail without an electronic signature (e-mail in which only the name and surname are stated and therefore does not contain data in electronic form, which are connected to other data in electronic form or are logically connected with them, and which signatory uses ) can be sent directly to the e-mail address of an employee of the Labour Office of the Czech Republic who deals with the given agenda. Email will not be considered an electronically submitted document, but our staff will endeavour to respond to it.
SUBMISSION OF THE FORM IN CERTIFICATE FORM TO THE RELEVANT BRANCH OF THE LABOR OFFICE OF THE CZECH REPUBLIC
The form can be filled in directly in electronic form, then printed out and, after printing, signed by hand.
Another way to fill in the form is to print a blank form and then fill it out.
