Claiming occupational disease: On 23 August, the Rzeczpospolita daily published an article entitled To pracodawca odpowiada za chorobę zawodową by Małgorzata Mroczkowska, legal counsel with SENDERO Tax & Legal. The article is about occupational diseases and related claims against employers, including against employment agencies. Labour market players should not dilute the related liability by shifting it onto third parties who are not the formal employers. For example, if a temporary worker suffers a breach of the equal treatment in employment principle, she has the right to claim damages from the temping agency and not from the hirer. For full text of the article, see Rzeczpospolita on-line service or here.
