Labor law amendments approved by Polish government

Int’l Relations

On Tuesday, the Polish government adopted the Labor Minister’s document on measures directed to protect employees and businesses during economic downturn, the government press office said. The draft law introduces regulations which consider direct financial aid to troubled businesses that could be used to subsidize payrolls. The solutions will protect jobs in a period of production or work time reduction, the government press office said in a statement. Support will be granted to businesspersons who record an at least 15% turnover decline in six subsequent months in the period of 12 months preceding the submission of the respective motion and who will have been forced to cut working hours or suspend operations on that account, the statement reads. The benefits will be granted for a period of up to six months.
