Polish employment law can seem complicated and confusing if you have never hired an employee in the country. However, Poland employment compliance and other EU countries’ laws share some similarities.
If you plan to expand to Poland, you’ll need to know these various labor laws to stay compliant. Globalization Partners is here to help. We’ll use our already-established Poland PEO to meet all levels of compliance while hiring employees who will work for you.
How to Hire Employees in Poland
The best way to hire Poland employees is with an employment contract. The country requires an employer and employee to draft, sign, and register an employment contract with the Social Security Bureau no later than seven days before the employee’s first day of work. Employers also need specific statements and forms in addition to the contract to register with the proper authorities.
Employment contracts must be in either Polish or English and include these items:
- Name of employer and employee
- Length of the contract
- Date it was signed
- Employment terms and conditions such as compensation, bonuses, type of work, place of work, and more
Poland Employment Compliance
Poland employment compliance includes multiple factors that begin with your employment contract. Three types of employment contracts are available and differ based on length:
- Short-term contracts can consist of just a three-month probationary period
- Fixed-term contracts are available for work up to 33 months but can be renewed up to three times
- Indefinite contracts are open-ended
You must comply with the rules of the contract you choose. If you hire a Poland employee under a probationary period, you should outline the terms of that period in the employment contract. If the agreement does not include working hours, payment frequency, or annual leave entitlements, you’ll need to inform the employee of these details in writing within seven days of the start of the contract.
How to Onboard Employees
There is no standard process to onboard employees, so you should tailor the process for your company. Before your employee’s first day, establish any training they will need and put it on their schedule for the first week. You can also create some workplace culture training modules or videos to get employees acclimated to your business environment.
