Under the new rules, an employee’s files will be held for only ten years, down from 50, and records will no longer have to be on paper.
Meanwhile, the Social Insurance Institution (ZUS), the state agency for social security, will have digital access to all employee data.
According to Entrepreneurship Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz, workers will have fewer responsibilities and greater security, while employers are set to save some PLN 130 million (EUR 30 million, USD 35 million) each year.
Previously, it was recommended that workers hold onto all their payslips in case of a dispute with ZUS over pensions. (vb)
