Łukasz Łaguna commented on the changes in the provisions as proposed by the Ministry of Family, Labour, and Social Policy at that time in an article that is available on the website prawo.pl.

In the cited article, our expert also referred to the casuistic prerequisites for the introduction of remote work, controversial provisions concerning possible inspections of employees at their homes, and to the archaic nature of the proposed changes that do not meet the current needs of the labour market.
