Scope of reference of employees’ right to daily and weekly rest (a discussion article)

Beata Rutkowska

Abstrakt

The paper attempts to answer the question of whether periods of daily and weekly rest provided for in Art. 132 and 133 of the Labour Code Act of 26 June 1974 (Dz.U. 2020, item 1320 consolidated text, as amended, hereinafter referred to as: “the Labour Code”, “l.c.”) are to be accounted for with reference to the employment relationship, employer, or employee. Determinations in this respect were made by analysing various situations occurring in practice—employment of an employee with one employer on the basis of one employment relationship, simultaneous employment of an employee in several employment relationships with that employer, and parallel employment of an employee by more than one employer. This takes into account the need to ensure that the employee is afforded rest periods within strictly defined legal limits, as well as the nature of the right to daily and weekly rest and the purposes of this right.
