Where can I get legal employment support?
The social impact campaign “Know Your Rights” launched by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) increases awareness about employees’ rights among Ukrainian refugees in Poland with the aim to sensitize them about specificity of the Polish labour market, build their confidence during the job search and boost employability.
According to the IRC’s labour market assessment conducted last year, 70% of the Ukrainian refugees interviewed identified finding a job as their most pressing need. As the war has no end in sight, people who have found safety in Poland still report that securing a sustainable source of income remains among their primary concerns today. At the same time, often unsatisfactory working conditions, which include salaries below the minimum wage, no contractual protection, unregulated work schedules, and in some cases missed payments or other forms of abuse, have been flagged as the top barriers preventing refugees from finding safe and stable employment in Poland. All these barriers are more amplified by the fact that most of the refugees from Ukraine are women, which makes the process of finding decent employment more challenging.
The need to find secure employment is crucial in light of the recent changes to the refugee hosting laws , in place since March, as people fleeing Ukraine are now expected to cover part of their accommodation costs in the collective shelters. The IRC has warned that changes may impact the most vulnerable groups and result in premature returns amidst an unstable security situation, as well as force people to resort to unsafe employment, or other negative coping mechanisms, which may provide temporary means of survival but can seriously undermine people’s long- term well-being or security.
The IRC’s campaign will provide basic information on where to search for services, what types of contracts exist in Poland and what obligations an employer has to an employee and useful sources and contacts to gain additional information or legal assistance from partners we work with. We aim to reach Ukrainians in Poland but also those who are still in Ukraine but think about leaving the country, to enable them to make more informed decisions. To achieve that we engaged in cooperation with a number of Ukrainian opinion leaders to highlight both the details of the regulations, and stories of people who already operate within the existing legal frameworks.
