The Rzeczpospolita daily newspaper publishes a series of articles entitled “Harassment at the workplace”. The authors are expert lawyers from BKB, who analyse the main labour law regulations.

He also explained that the employer has the right to assess the work critically, if the aim of the criticism is to ensure the realisation of a plan or proper work organisation.
