Employers of Poland have long urged administration to change its approach to citizens. The introduction of the in dubio pro libertate principle in the Code of Administrative Procedures is another step towards improving relations between entrepreneurs and administration officials: after the in dubio pro tributario principle. The introduction of mediation and conciliatory conflict resolution is another positive development.
However, one should also keep in mind that the execution of the aforementioned regulations will be decisive. Even the best law will change little if it is not put into practice. Therefore, a change in the officials’ mentality is needed, as they are often prejudiced against entrepreneurs.
Employers of Poland appreciate the fact that these solutions were elaborated in cooperation with social partners, in the course of social dialog, and include many solutions suggested by employers’ organizations.
