Legislation Monitoring Centre
In Poland there is neither an internet portal nor an institution for employers responsible for monitoring the legislation process of regulations that determine the rules for business activity. At present employers  learn about changes in the law mainly from mass media or simply through the grapevine, usually with delay.



Revolution in the Labour Code in prospect


In the forum of the Tripartite Committee the participants commenced negotiations on an amendment to the Section VI of the Labour Code as well as on some solutions stabilizing employment in the case of fixed-term contracts. According to the concept presented by the ministry, the system of working hours, which is legally binding in the company, would be determined by collective agreement, agreement and consultation with the representation of employees or by the employer's announcement. Matters regarding accounting periods and breaks at work would also constitute the subject of the employer’s negotiations with the staff. The Labour Code would only specify the protective standards, e.g. the circadian dimension of rest.
