It is our pleasure to present to you the pre-holiday edition of the Labour Law Alert. Predominantly, we analyse the announcements of the impending autumn law-making activity which aims to result in new legal regulations, including in particular: new rules for employing foreigners, elements regarding labour law issues that arise in light of the announcement of the Polish Order initiative, new rules for examining employee sobriety, and a number of other issues. We also summarize the directions regarding the protection of whistleblowers and the available channels for reporting irregularities, important for entrepreneurs, as we await the pertinent national regulations implementing the relevant EU directive to come into effect. We invite you to read the alert
