Brexit’s consequences for British employees, posted workers or business travellers in Poland

As of 31 January 2020, the United Kingdom is no longer a member of the European Union and has since been recognised as a third country.

Clearer rules for access to regulated professions in the EU?

A draft amendment to the law on the recognition of professional qualifications acquired in the EU Member States has just been submitted to public consultation. The draft implements the EU directive on this subject (2018/958) into the Polish legal system. This directive in turn complements Directive 2005/36/EC on the recognition of professional qualifications. The deadline for implementation falls on 30th July 2020.
