Regulaciones de trabajo en Polonia
Recolectores de frutas

Polish work rules relaxed

Poland is making it easier for workers from Eastern Europe and Turkey to get certain jobs in Poland. Many of those jobs have been left by the large number of Poles who've gone to work in Western Europe for more money.

Under a new directive, farm workers from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine will no longer require work permits for seasonal jobs of up to three months. The rules for Turkish workers will also be relaxed.

Poland has had an unemployment rate of 15.7%; one of the highest in the European Union. More than one million Poles have left to work in Western Europe since Poland became an EU member in 2004. This includes an estimated 400,000 in Britain, where wages are much higher.

The directive was signed by the Polish Labour Ministry on Wednesday and is aimed especially at the fruit-picking sector. The relaxation also covers foreign language teachers, business executives, media correspondents, researchers and employees transferred to Poland by their companies, who will not need to apply for work permits. Turkish citizens who have lived in Poland for at least five years and have legally worked there for four years will no longer have to renew their work permits.
