About the blog

The world has become a global village.

Overseas companies set up their subsidiaries or branch offices in Poland or post their employees to work here. Even before employment is formally finalized the HR services come across a number of employment law questions, starting from, when applicable, the right to stay and work permits. This blog is meant to acquaint the persons in charge and other interested readers with the main concepts of Polish employment law, with an emphasis put on the employer’s responsibilities.

Because of this the posts will essentially revolve around theory, but I will make sure to provide some practical hints and examples. Wherever possible, I will also try to show differences between Polish employment law and employment law of other countries. However, please bear in mind that compact and to-the-point articles typical of a blog do not always cover all details related to a given issue.

The great advantage of this blog as a medium is that you may comment on the posts and ask questions. I encourage you to do so and to leave a word on your local employment law regulations. I am certain your input elicits interesting discussions.

Kind regards to all readers,



  1. Hi
    My employer has given me a indefinite contract and the timing is 7 am – 8pm in which we should only work for8hrs. Suppose I work from 12-8pm. And again I need to support on call. And the employer is asking to login the system every 15mnts in 1hr from 8pm-12am and if some calls come after 12 am we need to support. The over time allowance for 8pm-12am is just for 1hr, is this a correct way and what is the law behind this

    1. Hi, I am not sure I fully understand. Do you mean to say that you are supposed to login every 15 minutes after 8 PM and remain on call after 12 AM, i.e. during the night?
