MEAL ALLOWANCE

All employees under the employment relations (with a minimum workload of 0.5) are provided from the faculty's resources with a meal allowance. For further details see Dean’s Provision no. 12/2014.

From January 2018, the FSV will switch from printed paper vouchers to electronic cards.

The first advantage of the card is the quick and easy payment of the exact amount. Therefore, you do not have to settle the remaining balance in cash as in the case of the paper vouchers, or worry that the money will not be returned to you. Another advantage is that the card will be recharged every month and you do not need to pick it up at the faculty’s cash desk. The card is transferable to other family members and it is also possible to pay directly from your mobile phone. The biggest advantage is the increase in the value - the paper vouchers were worth 100 CZK, after the introduction of the electronic card the worth will be 110 CZK (55% contributed by the employer, 45% is paid by the employee).

Electronic cards will be handed over to you upon your signature along with the last paper vouchers for December 2017, i.e. in January 2018. The electronic card will already be recharged with one December paper voucher (100 CZK).

You manage your card with your personal account that you can also download to your mobile phone. You will see in your account what funds are available on the card. In order for the card to be activated, the value of one paper voucher needs to be recharged to the card. If you lose the card, you block it and ask for a new one. You will not lose your funds, they will be transferred to a new card.

The amount paid by the employees will be deducted from their salary; there will no longer be an option to pay at the faculty’s cash desk. In this case, it is necessary to conclude an Agreement on Salary Deductions (filled in, signed and sent to the Account Office). If an employee is not interested in meal allowances provided by the employer, s/he will pass his/her decision in the form of a statement to the head of the Account Office.
