Changes in regulations concerning global mobility

What is global mobility?

Due to the constant development of businesses and the fact that they are, more and more often, operating from several countries around the world at once, legal regulations concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services have appeared. This model is profitable for the businesses, because they can move their biggest ‘talents’ to offices and countries that could use their abilities in the best way. For the employees, on the other hand, it could pose a chance for development and give them a possibility to move abroad without having to look for another job. Initiatives like this are supported by the European Union – in 2019 they even issued a practical guide on posting (link)

Law regulations

Issues concerning global mobility are regulated, among others, by the Directive 96/71/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 1996 concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services, OJ L 018 21.1.1997, p. 1-9 (later: Directive 96/71/EC), Directive 2014/67/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 May 2014 on the enforcement of Directive 96/71/EC concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services and amending Regulation (EU) No 1024/2012 on administrative cooperation through the Internal Market Information System ( ‘the IMI Regulation’ ) Text with EEA relevance, OJ L 159, 28.5.2014, p. 11–31 (later: Directive 2014/67/EU) and in Directive (EU) 2018/957 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 28 June 2018 amending Directive 96/71/EC concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services (Text with EEA relevance), OJ L 173, p. 16-24 (later: Directive 2018/957).

Polish property in insolvency estate in the light of the Regulation (EU) 2015/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 May 2015 on insolvency proceedings

Applicable regulations

The bankruptcy cases are regulated in Poland majorly by the Insolvency Act of 2003 (in Polish: Ustawa z dnia 28 lutego 2003 r. Prawo upadłościowe (t.j. Dz. U. z 2020 r. poz. 1228 z późn. zm.)) (later: ‘Insolvency Act of 2003’). Yet it is not the only applicable regulation. In cases of cross-border bankruptcy proceedings or cases where a Polish citizen is adjudged bankrupt in the territory of the Member State of the European Union or Ireland, the bankruptcy proceedings are regulated by the Regulation (EU) 2015/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 May 2015 on insolvency proceedings (OJ L 141, 5.6.2015, p. 19-72) (later: ‘Regulation 2015/848’).
