Employing foreigners – legal and cultural aspects


Time: 19th November 2018 at 9:00-11:30 am

Location: Taylor Wessing, ul. Mokotowska 1, (Politechnika metro station), Warsaw

Polish companies employ an increasing number of foreign workers. On 1st July 2018 new regulations were introduced simplifying employment of foreigners. The growing appetite of Polish companies for employees from across borders means the need to meet not only legal requirements, but also face cultural differences in the recruitment process and place of work. Taylor Wessing and Mabor invite you to a legal training session combined with a practical workshop on soft skills.
