On Tuesday, the Constitutional Tribunal issued a clear ruling: employees on contracts of order and the self-employed may join the unions. Long-term this may contribute to the distinction between two categories of employees: those who work on contracts of employment and those with other employment forms.
Everything suggests that sooner or later the rights of the two groups will be partially unified. As is to be expected, employers are skeptical. – These groups differ significantly. In my opinion, the changer regulations will restrict the union rights of those not on contracts of employment to negotiating issues of employment and the prohibition of discrimination against union members – says Monika Gładoch, attorney at law, expert of Employers of Poland.
