Deadline for appealing a dismissal will be extended to 14 days

The Polish Government has just announced that the measures to be put in place on 1 January 2017 will include an extension of the appeal deadline for requesting reintegration or compensation in particular in the case of dismissal or the end of a service contract.

This was proposed by the Social Dialogue Council and supported by the Ombudsman.

At present, employees have seven days to contest a decision to dismiss them before a professional court, but that was deemed too short a period of time to find a lawyer and prepare a case. This proposed revision of the Labour Code was approved by the plenary assembly of the Social Dialogue Council before being sent to the Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Policy.
