Severance Pay Entitlement in Poland

The obligation to pay severance depends on the termination grounds, and its amount depends on the duration of employment.

Termination in Poland

Employment contracts can be terminated by: 

  • Mutual agreement

  • Termination by notice

  • Expiry of the contract term

In case of termination by notice, both by the initiative of the employer and employee, a valid reason must be stated justifying the termination. However, please note that there is no fixed list of  “valid” or “justifiable” causes at law and the employee has a right to appeal through the courts if they consider their termination is unjustified. For this reason, we recommend terminations for cases of material or provable underperformance, serious breach or misconduct or by mutual agreement.

As a result of this lack of clarity, we ask you to provide a detailed job description for your employee, which makes it easier to prove material underperformance.

Periods of notice range between 3 days to 2 weeks during probation periods and 2 weeks to 3 months after the expiration of the probation period depending on length of service.

They are only a ballpark estimate, and the actual figure may be above or below the quoted amount based on a number of variables. These estimates represent a monthly average each year. In some cases, contribution maximums will lead to payments earlier in the year being larger, before being reduced once max is hit. If a 13th and 14th month are applicable, these have been pro-rated into the gross salaries.
