The work on the bill, which is supposed to help maintain jobs in the companies affected by the economic slowdown, has been already lasting for over half a year.
The Ministry of Labour and Social Policy ensured that the regulation would come into force in July. That has not happened yet. - We are concerned that the protracted legislative process will make the law turn out to be belated – says Violetta Żukowska, an expert of the Employers of Poland.
The first reading of the bill took place on Wednesday, July 24, however, the MPs decided to refer it to a special subcommittee. - This means that the parliamentary work will draw out a bit more. As a consequence, the parliament will be able to adopt these provisions not earlier than after the holidays, and entrepreneurs and workers will wait for help till autumn - says Żukowska.
