#HRThursday: Employment of foreigners from outside the EU

The number of foreigners working in Poland continues to grow. The vast majority of people employed by Polish employers are citizens from non-EU states. What formalities must be fulfilled in order to employ them?

Legalization of employment of foreigners involves dealing with a number of formalities, but in certain cases it can also be carried out in a simplified form. We invite you view a recording of a free webinar, during which experts of TGC Corporate Lawyers discussed the types of work and residence permits for foreigners from outside the EU and the employers’ obligations after the foreigner has started working.

Date of the webinar: 21 October 2021
Time of the webinar: 11 AM – 11:45 AM
Language: Polish


  • Obtaining a work permit – types of permits,
