Poland: The Sejm has passed a remote work amendment

On 13 January 2023, the Sejm (the lower house of the Polish parliament) finally passed the amendment to the Labour Code introducing remote work.

The amendment is still to be signed into law by the President of Poland and published in the Journal of Laws before it will become officially binding, with a standard two-month period for its enactment.

As a result, employers will be required to start intensive preparatory and implementation work, including:

  • Developing objectives and implementation strategies
    • work systems (remote, hybrid, occasional)
    • costs and settlement models (cash equivalent or a fixed fee)
    • time & place of work
  • Organising resources for implementation
    • software (e.g. IT)
    • service providers (e.g. OHS services)
    • procedures (e.g. data protection, control)
  • Developing documentation templates
    • remote / hybrid work / right to home office policies
    • data protection procedure
    • occupational health & safety documentation (e.g. assessment of professional risk)
  • Implementing remote work in an organisation
    • consulting employee representatives
    • communication
    • adopting final internal regulations and individual arrangements.
