Poland - Bill on junk job contracts has effects - May 31, 2016

In late February, amendments to the Labour Code to curb the excessive use of fixed-term contracts came into force (six months after they were formally enacted), ending a long battle in which, in 2012, even the European Commission had become involved. The journal Gazeta Wyborczarecently reported this month that the reform of these so-called junk job contracts - contracts for 2-3 months of temporary employment with minimum salary and no social security pay - starts generating profits. As a result of imposing a social insurance tax on the junk job contracts, the social insurance institution receives PLN 50 million monthly more than before the bill was enacted.
