The rate per 1 km of vehicle mileage for a passenger car with an engine capacity exceeding 900 cm3 will be PLN 1.038/km. The entry into force of the amendment is foreseen for the end of the year.

The Ministry of Health has drawn up a draft regulation on controls and measurements of harmful factors for health, in order to improve the quality of preventive examinations conducted in Poland. The medical examination standards in force today do not take into account new factors that are harmful, tiring or dangerous to health and do not correspond to the health needs of employees. A new annex to the draft regulation regarding the scope and frequency of preventive examinations of employees has been developed, taking into account the optimization of additional medical consultations and the inclusion of examinations that allow for the early diagnosis of diseases affecting the ability to carry out the work and to maintain a long-term professional activity.

The Ministry of Labor has prepared a draft law on professional activity, the idea is to include people excluded from work due to their place of residence, thus counteracting the depopulation of smaller cities and the country's sustainable development. The draft stipulates that entrepreneurs who decide to set up a remote workplace in the areas indicated by the Ministry will receive a subsidy equal to double the minimum wage, i.e. around PLN 7,000 for each new job. The subsidy can be applied if the job will be occupied by a young person entering the labor market, by a person under the age of 40 who is in the early stages of family development or by a person who takes care of a dependent family member. In addition, employers will receive up to PLN 900 (or ¼ of the minimum wage) as wage subsidy for one year for a parent working part-time, provided that the parent returns to the labor market after a period of parental leave.
