On Tuesday the Council of Ministers adopted the third deregulation bill. - Certainly it is not a miracle cure for all problems related to unemployment, but it is good that the government is trying to eliminate unnecessary or archaic laws - says Arkadiusz Pączka, director of the Legislation Monitoring Centre of Employers of Poland.
The purpose of deregulation - which eliminates the need to meet state requirements to work in some professions - is to expand the labour market, in particular for young people.
It is worth noting that the Ministry of Justice undertook to analyze the effects of modification, i.e. to evaluate its outcome (ex-post). Substantive assessment will focus on whether the Act serves its purpose as established by its drafters (and to what extent) and whether there have been any untoward effects of its implementation - particularly in the area of social costs. Results of analyzes are to be the basis for a possible correction of this regulation .
The latest package prepared by the Ministry of Justice covers 101 occupations. The first tranche (51 professions) has already been adopted, the Parliament is working on the second tranche of another 91 professions. It is not the end - the Ministry of Justice launched an online consultation survey on the fourth tranche.
