Legal restrictions on work on Sundays and festive days in Poland

Jakub Stelina


The article discusses legal regulations of Polish labor law regarding work on Sundays and public holidays. These issues relate to the employees’ right to weekly rest. General rules concerning work on Sundays and public holidays are regulated in the Labor Code. However, on March 1, 2018, a new law regulating the employment in sales outlets entered into force. It is planned to introduce, within two years, a total ban on working on Sundays and holidays in such facilities. Work will be exceptionally allowed only in selected places of a special nature.
