Polish Labour Law for HR and HR Business Partner

27 października | 10:00 28 października | 15:00

Currently the law affects virtually every aspect of the employer-employee relationship, from interviewing to termination. For HR and HR Business Partner, this complex regulatory environment poses ever-evolving challenges. Complying with the Polish labour law is a daunting task as this branch of law is constantly changing. While training programs are not ‘required’ under labour compliance so far, it is a requirement that all managers and employees know the laws and understand their roles and responsibilities. Training programs ensure that all individuals receive the same message consistently to avoid confusion in messages. Therefore, let us commit to help your company navigate the often murky area of Polish labour law.

The training takes into account the latest amendments and changes in the labour law regarding, in particular, contracts for a probationary period, fixed-term contracts and the introduction of the work-life balance directive (changes regarding parental leaves, carer’s leaves and the introduction of completely new institutions to the Labour Code) as well as remote work.
