The Council of Ministers has passed an amendment to the Labour Code aimed at putting an end to employment without contract. It will be harder to cheat on the National Labour Inspectorate.
On Monday, the Council of Ministers passed a government amendment to the Labour Code. A contract of employment will have to have a written form, as is the case now, but if it is not signed, its conditions will have to be confirmed in writing before work starts. The bill will now go to Sejm. It will come into force six weeks after it is published in the Journal of Laws.
– In this case, there can be no doubt: pathologies have to be eliminated – says Arkadiusz Pączka, representative of Employers of Poland in the Social Dialog Council. He adds that as far as the faults of the bill are concerned, he would emphasize the administrative burdens it may cause for small companies.
