Abstract: 1997 was a turning point in the development of unemployment. The rate of unemployment grew steadily in 1998, in February 1999 reaching a record-high level in the history of unemployment in the Czech Republic: 8.3 %. Significant growth of long-term unemployment which is one of the most pressing problems on labour market, has been continuing since 1998. Czech labour market has been getting closer to standard labour markets; notable growth of long-term unemployment can therefore be expected in the next years. Up-to now Czech experience with long-term unemployment is rather limited. On the other hand, some of extensive West-European experience could be used. Thanks to relatively low levels of long-term unemployment, the unique chance still exists to make the preventive employment policy with respect to long-term unemployed. After having reviewed West European experience, one can conclude that in Czech conditions some of projects could be useful to adopt. Common features observable at almost all programmes are the individual approach to unemployed persons and combination of different types of measures. Generally, active employment policy should be given wider space within Czech practice.
