Author: Go¶cie

This entry was authored by Micha³ Balicki.

Update: On 23 August 2013 the Act of 12 July 2013 Amending the Labour Code and the Labour Unions Act came into force, allowing extension of the reference period and introduction of variable work schedules (flextime).

We invite you to read and share your thoughts on our August Legal Alert, in which we briefly and concisely discuss the major changes resulting from the recent amendment of the Labour Code.

On 1 August 2013, the President of Poland signed into law the Act of 12 July 2013 Amending the Labour Code and the Labour Unions Act. The key changes involve extension of the calculation period for working time to as long as 12 months and introduction of variable work schedules (flextime). This will provide more flexibility in scheduling and longer-term planning of employees’ working time. An employer wishing to extend the calculation period for working time should modify the work rules or notice specifying the length of calculation periods applied by the employer. The act goes into force 14 days after publication in the Journal of Laws.
