The presence of Polish nationals in Great Britain necessitates constant cooperation of British law firms with KG Legal in employment matters. This is due to the fact that the settlements concluded outside Poland need to be approved by the Polish civil court, in case a party to such a settlement is a Polish citizen (or Polish business entity). Our law firm provided assistance in a cross-border employment case in which there was concluded a settlement before the Labour Dispute Conciliation Committee (ACAS) in London. In the light of the Polish civil procedure the institution of this type should be regarded as an equivalent to the arbitration court. The recognition or declaration of enforceability of an arbitration award issued abroad or a settlement reached before the arbitration court abroad is decided by the Polish civil court after conducting the hearing (Art. 1215 § 1 of the Civil Procedure Code).
