Grow your team in Poland with Remote

Looking to employ workers in Poland? Companies hiring in Poland must either own a legal entity in the country or work with a global employment solutions provider, usually one that provides employer of record services.

Remote can employ your team in Poland on your behalf through our local legal entity in the country and handle payroll, benefits, taxes, and compliance for your Poland team. You can also pay contractors now in Poland with Remote.

Risks of misclassification

Poland, like many other countries, treats self-employed individuals or contractors and full-time employees differently. Misclassification of contractors in Poland may lead to fines and penalties for the offending company.

Employing in Poland

Employees in Poland must receive a work medical examination prior to hire as well as a mandatory health and safety training session. Remote can handle both of these requirements for your team. Poland allows both fixed-term and indefinite employment contracts, as well as formal probationary periods, which are limited to three months. Employers should always use written employment agreements to ensure both company and employee know what to expect.

Minimum Wage

Minimum wage in Poland is PLN 4,300 from 1 July 2024.

Payroll Cycle

For customers of Remote, all employee payments will be made in equal monthly instalments on or before the last working day of each calendar month, payable in arrears.

Onboarding Time

We can help you get a new employee started in Poland fast. The minimum onboarding time we need is only 8 working days.

Our team ensures your employees are onboarded and paid as quickly as possible while keeping your business compliant with all local employment legislation. The minimum onboarding time begins after the employee submits all required information onto the Remote platform. The onboarding timeline is also dependent upon registration with local authorities.

For all non-nationals of the country of employment, the Right to Work assessment (if applicable) will add three extra days to the total time to onboard. There may be extra time required if we need to follow-up on the right to work assessment.

Please note, payroll cut-off dates can impact the actual first day of employment. Remote has a payroll cut-off date of the 10th of the month unless otherwise specified.
