Sue Your Employer

Show Me the Money

Research by TNS Poland for KRD Economic Information Bureau shows that 75% of Polish people have no excuse for employers not paying their salaries on time. The precarious financial situation of an enterprise was listed as one of the reasons for a delay or lack of salary. Only 8% of Poles would accept their salaries being sacrificed to rescue an enterprise from bankruptcy. Meanwhile, the economic slowdown and capital expenditure were excuses that only a very small percentage of Poles found acceptable. In 2014, the National Labour Inspectorate recorded a delay of salary payments for a total of more than PLN 171 million. Konrad Siekierka from VIA LEX claims that, ”We have certain responsibilities as employees, but so do our employers. The punctual payment of salaries is one of them.” He adds, ”An employer who does not pay salaries should be asked in writing to pay the outstanding salary. If the employer does not fulfill this obligation within a determined deadline, my advice is to file a lawsuit to the Labour Court as soon as possible. The sooner we obtain a judicial decision, the more chances we have to recover our money. Not everyone is also aware that for any delay of salary, we are also entitled to statutory interest which currently amounts to 8%.”
