Amendment of the provisions governing employment certificates — selected legal problems

The foregoing article aims at evaluating the amendment of the regulations governing employment certificates. The main objective of the changes introduced in 2019 was to adopt solutions that will make it easier for employees to exercise their rights to obtain an employment certificate from their employer. The author shall pay particular attention to the modification of the time limit for issuing such document and the additional claims which the legislature has granted to the employee making it possible to file a formal request in the labour court regarding obtaining an employment certificate. The first concerns the employer's obligation to issue an employment certificate in the event of failure to issue such document, and the second concerns the determination of entitlement to an employment certificate in cases where the employer does not exist or for other reasons it is impossible to bring an action against him impelling him to issue the employment certificate. As a consequence of the amendments made to the Labour Code, the amendment of the provisions of the Code of Civil Procedure introduced into the legal order non-procedural proceedings in matters of labour law.
