The National Labour Inspection will get new prerogatives. The aim is to make it more efficient. The first daily wage syndrome will no longer protect offending companies.
Uncovering employment based on fake civil contracts will be easier, All evidence suggests that the Inspection will have more tools to verify the legality of employment. The need for this was emphasized both by the Inspection itself and the Commissioner for Human Rights. More effective labour inspection is an element of the PiS program. Changes include a.o.: the possibility of controlling a company without prior notification and the principle that employment has to be confirmed in writing before the contract comes into force. Unofficial information obtained by “DGP” indicates that these amendments are most likely to be passed quickly. The idea that the inspector (and not only the court, as is the case now) would establish the existence of a labour relation causes most controversy – including in the ranks of the now ruling party.
– One should not forget that the National Labour Inspectorate is only one of the institutions supervising employers. ZUS and the tax authorities also conduct controls. An atmosphere of constant controls sis surely not conducive to business activity and job creation – remarks Monika Gładoch, legal counsellor and expert of Employers of Poland.
