Employee Capital Plans

On 1 January 2019, there entered into force the Employee Capital Plans (ECP) Act of 4 October 2018, whose aim – according to the legislator – is a change of the current pension scheme. The ECP Act assumes an establishment of a private voluntary pension savings scheme, whose participants will be the State, employers and employees (irrespective of the form of employment).

ECP main assumptions:

  1. ECPs, optional for employees and obligatory for employers, constitute a long term savings scheme.
  2. Payments made towards ECPs will be financed by the employer and the employee, out of their respective own funds.
  3. Employees and ECP participants may make additional payments.
  4. Grant of the ownership title to funds and their exclusion from enforcement (as a general rule).
  5. Funds gathered as part of ECPs will be paid upon attaining certain age – the same for women and men.
  6. The ECP Act assumes the conclusion of two agreements:
    • agreement on ECP management (between the employer and the financial institution, i.e. an investment fund managed by an investment funds company, pension fund managed by the Pension Fund Society, employee pension society or an insurance company) and
    • agreement on ECP maintenance (between the employee and the financial institution).
  7. Employers will join ECPs successively, starting from July 2019 to January 2021.

Confirmation of fulfilment of employer’s statutory responsibilities under labour law

Anti-discrimination policy, covering prevention of mobbing and unequal treatment, including harassment

In recent months, numerous instances of workplace mobbing and discrimination have been reported to the public. It is the employers, on whom an obligation to ensure that such acts do not occur at the workplace was imposed. In response to the employers’ needs, the Law Firm D. Dobkowski sp.k. established a team of experts possessing knowledge and experience enabling them to verify and confirm that the employer fulfilled the above-mentioned and other obligations under the labour law.

We offer legal services in the following areas:

Flow of information in capital groups

Our experience shows that holding companies very often receive, in various form, information from their subsidiaries. Such information is transferred for numerous purposes, including management (also as part of services subject to transfer pricing) or stock exchange reporting, usually without due analysis whether or not such a transfer infringes upon absolutely binding provisions of law or violates rights of the subsidiaries’ (minority) shareholders or contractors.

Moreover, such a situation generates conflict of interest for the subsidiary’s management board that is required on the one hand to keep secret particulars of the company it represents, and on the other hand – to transfer vital information to its parent company.

In such circumstances, the following risks occur:

  • reluctance of members of the subsidiaries’ management boards to immediately provide the holding company with all vital information about the subsidiary (which is of importance particularly for holding companies that are required to report information significant for the stock exchange),
  • exposure to an allegation that members of the subsidiaries’ management boards are made to engage in illegal actions,
  • exposure to claims from the subsidiaries’ contractors in the event of disclosure of information about such contractors to a third party, which in relation to them is the holding company,
  • exposure to claims from the subsidiaries’ (minority) shareholders (if any).

Product Regulatory Compliance Verification

Increasing pace of technological advancement along with a constant development of solutions and products available on the market instigate constant changes within legal environment. Changes to the products manufacturing, distribution and usage require relevant amendment of the rules of introducing such products onto the market and their use. Products manufacturers, distributors and even users themselves are imposed numerous legal obligations, including administrative ones, whose non-performance may bring about serious consequences, including financial penalties.

What child safety symbols and warning labels should be placed on a toy packaging? What is a measuring container bottle? Where in the shop there should be displayed information about collecting waste electrical and electronic equipment? In what way to recognize a recycling fee for plastic bags in the books of account? What products need to be reported to a competent inspector before their sale? These are just a few dilemmas that entrepreneurs must solve every day.
