The Government of Poland is planning to set up a series of reforms to improve the country's job market. The government is planning to issue electronic card to the unemployed under its new e-Employment contract.
Currently, the European Union employs around 11 per cent of workers as teleworkers with the use of new ICT technologies. The country is hoping that Teleworking or eWorking will offer great flexibility to the employed to create new jobs. The new legislation is designed to clarify the respective positions of employers and employees under a new type of employment contract which gives official status to teleworking. The government will also seek to promote the creation of new teleworking jobs through a combination of technical support, tax relief and other measures. Meanwhile the government has also decided to allocate electronic cards to the job hunters in Poland. The new card will contain information on the various forms of support provided by the unemployment office to the individual. The project aims to improve the efficiency of the work of the job centre, and also to provide a better level of service to both the unemployed and to the companies looking for employees.
