Abstract/Citation: This Act, which contains six Parts, has as its purpose to issue "provisions, legal measures and operational principles" for enterprises considered to constitute "basic elements of the national economy" having a social aim in the implementation of the state plan. According to Part I (Introductory provisions), this embraces all workers of the enterprise who are in an employment relationship within the meaning of ss. 27 et seq. of the Labour Code (LS 1975 - Cz. 2 (cons.)), excluding those in a subsidiary employment relationship (s. 70 of that Code). Save exceptions (for example, liquidation under s. 251 of that Code), the enterprise and the State have independent responsibilities; in case of a dispute, resort may be had to "economic arbitration" pursuant to the Economic Code of 1964 (Part II: Rules and operations of the enterprise). The other Parts of this Act deal respectively with the following: establishment, registration and dissolution of the enterprise; management organs of the enterprise and socialist self-management; "socio-economic functions" within the meaning of the Economic Code; social development of the workers' collective, and common, transitional and final provisions (Part VI, indicating 1 July 1988 as the date of entry into force).
