Audit of the economic credibility of an employment agency for a German client

At the request of a German client, KG Legal verified a Polish employment agency addressed by a foreign entity operating in the field of employing workers from India in Poland for jobs related to steel and mining industry in one of the largest economic zones in Poland. A positive audit aimed to provide credibility conditions for the foreign client which opens effective cross-border cooperation. Foreign business entities wishing to cooperate with the Polish employment agencies, first of all, pay attention to the presence of employment agencies in public business registers (Register of Entrepreneurs of the National Court Register, Register of Employment Agencies) and to the conditions for issuing a certificate on registering an entity in the register entitling to provide services as an employment agency in Poland.

KG Legal effectively manages to obtain child return order from the Polish Court

KG Legal Family Law Team succeeded in obtaining child return order from the Polish Family Court under the Abduction Convention (Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction).

In the present case the child was abducted by the Polish mother from the Dutch jurisdiction and brought to Poland. The child’s father (Dutch citizen) agreed to the mother’s trip with the minor child for a few weeks to Poland. After that time the mother failed to return the child to its habitual place of residence.

The Polish Family Court verified the negative premises of child return order based on art. 13 letter a) and b) of the Abduction Convention. All negative premises were ruled out by the Polish Family Court when ordering the minor’s return to Holland.
