What steps should an employer employing a citizen of Ukraine take?
– The employer should notify the poviat labor office competent for the seat or place of residence of the entity that work has been entrusted to that citizen within 14 days from the date of commencement of work by a citizen of Ukraine.
– Such notification entitles the foreigner to perform work without the obligation to have a work permit or declaration. Failure to meet these conditions means that it is impossible to perform work without a work permit.
– The notification is made via the ICT system- https://www.praca.gov.pl/eurzad/index.eup#/panelOgolny
In the notification, the entity entrusting the performance of work to a citizen of Ukraine provides, information on the entity entrusting the performance of work to a citizen of Ukraine (name or first name (s) and surname, address of the seat or place of residence, business phone number or e-mail address, NIP and REGON identification number – in the case of an entity conducting business activity, or PESEL number – in the case of a natural person) and personal data of a citizen of Ukraine.
Entity entrusting the performance of work also informs about type of contract between the entity entrusting the performance of work and the citizen of Ukraine, position or type of work performer and place of work.
In the case of Ukrainian citizens who entered Poland from February 24, 2022, submitting an application for a PESEL number and receiving a PESEL number is a confirmation of legal residence under the Specustawa.
