November legal advice in the MP Marek Kuchciński's office

The PiS Bureau for Intervention and Legal Advice in Przemyśl is the parliamentary work zone of the Sejm Speaker Marek Kuchciński. It is involved in solving the problems of Podkarpackie Voivodeship and regional policy.

The office provides assistance to anyone affected by injustice, incompetence or arrogance of public authorities and institutions, who needs guidance in exercising their rights. Regardless of nationality, political views or social status.

In November 2018, a total of 53 advice. Civil law cases predominated.

A new issue that has arisen in the Office is a personnel matter regarding a change in salary terms. A party was offered to sign an addendum reducing his salary, to which the party did not agree. Does this amount to a termination of employment? No.

If a change in the conditions of remuneration is not effected by agreement of the parties, the employer, wishing to change these conditions, must apply to the employee with a so-called changing notice.

It is similar to a notice of termination of an employment contract in that the employee has an equal amount of time from receipt of the notice to accept or reject the new terms. For example, if a one month notice period is provided the employee has that month to make a decision. It is important that the notice of termination must be in writing to be legally effective. The employee may also, within 7 days of receiving the notice of termination, appeal to the labour court, challenging its legitimacy.
