Poland: New Work Permit Procedure

Recently, the Polish Labor Office introduced a new legislation that modified the work permit application procedures.

This new legislation eliminated the requirement of 'obtaining Promise of Work Permit, based on issued visa.' Now, the Work Permit can be obtained and will be completed at the home country when the foreign national applies for a visa in order to legalize the stay in Poland. Please note however, that a Work Visa or Residence Permit must be obtained first to validate a Work Permit.

The whole procedure is approximately completed within 60 days from the date the complete application packet is submitted.

The Work Permit Validity is now seen to last for maximum of three years. However, authorities advised that in 2009, the permits will only be for 12 months. This is most likely a strategy to transition for the longer validity of the Work Permit.

Intra Company Transfer (ICT) has been simplified by eliminating 'workforce demand step'. The process is shortened for a month after eliminating that particular step.

The following must be met in exchange to the local market information.
a. Foreign national must remain on the payroll of the home country outside Poland
b. There is no employment contract with host entity based in Poland
c. The transfer is done within the same capital group

The above procedure will help both the sponsoring company and the visa recipient in regards to timing and simplification of both application process. The ICT is very supportive to the business goals of both the home country company and host country company plus convenience of the employee. The key to success is that all entities involved must be synchronized and compliant to the regulations. Guidance from an experienced professional is essential if you are not certain on the components of the regulations.

For any questions or need guidance about the above changes and procedures, please send to

USA: Continuing Updates: US Employment Eligibility - I-9 Form

The USCIS released an announcement in January 30 2009 about its 60 days period up to April 3rd 2009 - the implementation of the an interim final rule "Documents Acceptable for Employment Eligibility Verfication" which was published in the Federal Register on December 17th 2008.

The public will have more ample time to provide comments at the Federal Register. This public comment will end on March 4th 2009. Interested parties who would like to share their opiniions or comments can visit this website:

The interim final rule will provide an amendment of the regulations governing the types of acceptable identity and employment authorization documents which employees can present to their employers when completing the I-9 Form (Employment Eligibility Form). Under the interim rule it prohibits the acceptance of an expired document to verify an employment authorization.

As an employer's representative - the HR Professional who will be conducting the validation of acceptable identification documents for the I-9 Form must take an extra moment and effort in understanding appropriate documents that are acceptable.

As necessary, attend continuing education that are focused on Managing I-9 Eligibility Documents and Compliance. Seek the assistance of a qualified and experienced HR Consultant on Employment Eligibility and Work Permits.

There is a high risk for both the employer and the HR Professional when a new hire will be found to be using a non-acceptable document.
