The Czech government has approved measures to monitor the environmental impacts of the planned expansion of the Turów brown coal mine located in the close proximity to the Czech border. The expansion was approved by the Polish authorities, despite Czech concerns that it would threaten water sources for villages on the Czech side, as well as severely increasing noise and dust pollution.
Over 20 percent of Czech employees changed their job over the past six months, and more than a fifth are considering finding new employment or are actively searching for it, according to a global survey Workmonitor carried out by the recruitment agency Randstad. The survey also suggests that 65 percent of Czech employees are happy with their current employer.
Since June 2016, when the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU, the number of British nationals living and working in the Czech Republic has been steadily growing. According to data released by the Czech Labour Office and the Ministry of Interior, the number of British employees in the Czech Republic has risen by more than a third. There has also been a 55 percent increase in the number of British nationals who filed for permanent residence in this country.
