The bill to reduce the weekly working hours from 40 to 35 hours has already been submitted to Parliament. Shortening the working time does not change the amount of remuneration, which means that it will not be less than the amount received so far. The project also does not provide for restrictions on the methods of organizing working hours during the settlement period and allows operating the system in three shifts of eight hours each.

The rationale for the project was to improve Poles’ health and prevent burnout. According to a study conducted by Smartscope in 2021 on behalf of the Nationale-Nederlanden, many Polish employees have noticed symptoms of burnout. Employees should have more time to rest, spend time with family and friends, connect with nature and exercise. The expected effects of shortening the working time are also an increase in its efficiency, as stipulated by law.
