Abstract: The issue of recording the working time of academic staff is a very complicated matter requiring a deeper legal analysis. An amendment to the Higher Education Act legalizes the previous situation when a part of his/her duties was performed by an academic employee outside the workplace of the relevant higher education institution, i.e. his/her employer. The division of the working time of an academic employee into the period when he/she performs mainly pedagogical activities and activities related to pedagogical activities in the workplace of the employer and the period when he/she performs scientific and other creative activities that he/she himself/herself schedules in the place he/she chooses, is definitely the right way. However, these amendments must fully comply with the applicable current wording of the Labour Code. A problematic area are the performance of the work of an academic employee outside the workplace of the employer and the questions of the length of working time, breaks at work and between shifts, performance of night work and work on Saturdays and Sundays as well as questions related to the occupational safety and health at workplace.

Key Words: Labour Law; Labour Code; Academic Staff; Legal Conditions; Working Time; Record Keeping; Breaks at Work; Occupational Safety and Health at Workplace; Problems; the Czech Republic.
