Abstract: In its theoretical part, this bachelor thesis is concerned with the possible definitions and
types of labour market flexibility with a subsequent aim at numerical flexibility. The first
part deals with OECD and World bank indeces, which measure numerical flexibility at
national level. Since these are established on the measure of strictness of Employment
protection legislation, a part of this study is dedicated to the development of labour law in
the Czech republic. This is followed by a look at flexible forms of employment and
organisation of working time, the development of which is related to the strategies that
countries employ in their bid to achieve higher employment. The main target of this work is
to create indeces which will measure internal and external numerical flexibility in all
regions of the Czech republic. Their structuring is established on the methodology of
Vassilis Monastiriotis who created such index for regions of Great Britain. The resulting
index values are used in panel data. The hypothesis that a low vaule of flexibility results in
a high rate of unemployment was tested and was confirmed only with the index of external
numerical flexibility. Despite this result, it was found that the indeces are useful and may
help us in understanding and explaining the situation on the labor market.
