This seminar will provide an overview of current Polish employment law – and you will hear practical management advice, guidance on anticipated problem areas and key insights into the regional cultural differences.
More and more businesses are seizing growth opportunities and moving operations to Poland to stay ahead of their competition. Many Western European countries have already set up operations, taking advantage of dynamic and cost-effective human resources.
Doing business in different employment law jurisdictions can prove particularly problematic for the HR professionals responsible for integrating cross-country operations. A good knowledge of Polish labour laws is vital in maintaining good staff relations and avoiding disputes.
