The new world of work in Poland

As a result of COVID-19 and measures put in place in response to the pandemic, countries around the world – including Poland – have adopted new innovations in the area of employment in a bid to keep their workers safe and productive. One such innovation is work from home.

A year after the pandemic began, home-office remote work has proven so effective, many people believe it will become a fixture of our post-pandemic future. But remote work raises a host of legal and administrative challenges. This article – based on the 23 February 2021 webinar The Future is Now: The New World of Work in Poland and hosted by CMS legal experts Maciej Andrzejewski and Aleksandra Gajzlerska with CMS Poland – explores the impact of homeworking in Poland for both workers and companies. Read the article, listen to the podcast and watch webinar recording on this topic below.
