Salary, calculation of contributions and employee benefits

The minimum wage for work in 2020 is 2,600 PLN gross. The minimum hourly rate is 17 PLN gross. The employee’s full-time monthly remuneration may not be lower than the amount indicated. The minimum wage guarantee is protected.

Contributions and taxation accompanying remuneration for work are distributed in Poland between the employer and employee in a ratio of 17.93% to 22.71%. This includes PIT, accident insurance (in these two cases paid by the employer), pension contribution, disability contribution (if applicable) and health insurance.

There are four basic types of employee benefits:

  • Short-term employee benefits – all are settled within twelve months of the end of the reporting period. This group includes wages and salaries, paid holiday and sick leave, profit payments and bonuses. You can also distinguish non-cash benefits, for example related to medical care, a company apartment or a company car.
  • Post-employment employee benefits – these are retirement benefits (eg pensions and lump-sum retirement benefits), life insurance or post-employment medical care.
  • Other long-term employee benefits – jubilee bonuses and other long-term work benefits, long-term paid absences (eg academic leave, long-term leave) and long-term disability benefits.
  • Benefits for termination of employment.

Important! The current dimension of annual leave for employees on a contract of employment depends on the length of service. Persons whose seniority is shorter than 10 years – are entitled to 20 days of leave, for more than 10 years – 26 days of leave.

 

Employee Folders

From January 1, 2019, we divide personal files into four parts: A, B, C and D.

  • Part A: documents collected in connection with applying for employment
  • Part B: documents regarding the establishment of the employment relationship and employment record
  • Part C: documents related to the termination of employment of the person
  • Part D: documents related to the employee’s order liability or liability specified in other regulations

All documents should be in the relevant parts of the file, and each of these parts should contain the full list of documents contained therein. They should be arranged chronologically and numbered

The new division of personal files applies to employees employed from January 1, 2019. Files collected until December 31, 2018 may be left unchanged, i.e. only divided into parts A, B and C. Documents included in these files from January 1, 2019 should be collected in accordance with the above rules.
