Reflections on the nature of Czech social law
Social law is not a single branch of law, but rather the social rights of individuals and groups. From this perspective social law can be defined as those fields of law the aim of which is to implement and apply citizens basic social rights. Social law includes the regulation of labour protection, social (security) insurance, state social support and social aid. Contemporary Czech social law has been also significantly influenced by the relevant documents of international organizations relating to the protection of human rights, which also include social rights.
