Introducing minimum wage on contracts of order will be a significant burden for companies – Łukasz Kozłowski in “Rzeczpospolita”

18-08-2016

Record sums from contributions paid on behalf of employees on contracts of order are coming in to ZUS. And it is not the end of changes. Entrepreneurs are in for new burdens starting in 2017. – I think that the introduction of a 13 PLN minimum per hour wage for orders will be a significant problem for companies, as employees on these contracts have not made much money before – assesses Łukasz Kozłowski, expert of Employers of Poland.

 

Most recent ZUS figures show that the number of employees on contracts of order is at a record high with 1 131 000 such contracts in June 2016. Their number in the corresponding month the year before was 40 000 lower, so the difference is significant.

 

– I think that the introduction of a 13 PLN minimum per hour wage for orders will be a significant problem for companies, as employees on these contracts have not made much money before – assesses Łukasz Kozłowski, expert of Employers of Poland. – Many entrepreneurs will try to bypass the law, a.o. by forging working time registers in order to save money. New regulations impose the obligation to register every employee’s working hours monthly to help calculate the remuneration. It is possible that many companies will only employ people who agree to have their working hours undercalculated – he adds.
