23 million in penalties

As is clear from the State Labour Inspectorate’s Report from 2014, inspectors conducted over 90 thousand inspections at nearly 73 thousand employers. They issued over 19 thousand penalties for the total amount of over 23 million PLN. In comparison to inspections conducted by the Social Security Institution (as we wrote here) does not seem to be that considerable.

Among the most important issues from the report it is worth to mention that the SLI in many cases recommended employers to swap civil contracts to employment contracts for their employees. The vast majority of them followed the recommendation what enabled the employers to avoid costly court proceedings.

However the biggest amount of reservations, the SLI issued towards the legality of employment, especially in case of workers from outside of the Polish eastern border.
