Under a single work agreement an employee will be free to leave a month after handing in their resignation. When employees are given notice, it will last three months.
Entrepreneurs were electrified by the proposal of the Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz to introduce a single contract of employment. The more so, as it turns out to assume additional privileges for temporary employees and inferior treatment of their employers.
It is also a problem for employers that the proposal is vague. It is not clear if a single contract is to replace all existing agreements lasting longer than one month or if there is a chance that some of the current solutions will be kept.
– I believe that the introduction of a single contract of employment should not mean there will be no contracts for replacement or temporary work – adds Witold Polkowski, an expert of Employers of Poland. – Such forms of employment have their established place in the labour market and there is no problem with one big contract of employment and several smaller contracts used in specific situations.
