Employee Luncheon Vouchers Under Attack
An article in today’s Hospodarske Noviny points to a plan by the Association of Hotels and Restaurants (ZHR) to take some of the power away from luncheon vouchers, as establishment owners are not happy about the commission paid to the ticket issuing companies.
Employees are entitled to some kind of meal or meal compensation from employers if working full time, and the Association is trying to get employers to find other ways of serving up meals to their employees. At present, the only other option for obliged employers is to set up their own canteen or service.
Restaurants are not happy with the current luncheon voucher system, as they are losing out on 3-5% of the value of the payment when returning the tickets to the issuers, which bites into their already dwindling profit.
