What are the Differences Between PEO and EOR?

When you decide to expand into a new market with a PEO or global EOR (Employer of Record), it’s helpful to know the differences between these two similar services in order to choose which one is the most suitable for your needs:  

  • A PEO provider is a company that offers HR services to another company’s employees. These services include but are not limited to, payroll, tax, and legal regulatory compliance. 
  • An EOR (Employer of Record) provider is a company that acts as a PEO but can also legally and officially hire employees on behalf of other companies. Aside from the services provided by a PEO, Employer of Record services also cover all the liabilities of recruiting and employing employees. 
  • In a PEO agreement, the contract remains between the original company and the employee. 
  • In an EOR agreement, the contract is directed by the original company but made between the EOR and the employee. 

INS Global offers both PEO and EOR solutions in Poland according to your requirements. You can read this article on the differences to learn more, or talk to one of our consultants today to see which would be best for you.

There are 13 days of annual paid public holidays in Poland as follows: Jan. 1, Epiphany, Easter Sunday and Monday, Labor Day, Constitution Day, 1st day of Whitsun Holidays, Corpus Christi, St. Mary’s Ascension Day, All Saints’ Day, Independence Day, and Christmas. 

However: Those holidays which traditionally fall on a Sunday are nott counted as paid.

For those who have worked less than ten years, the minimum number of paid vacations days is 20, and the number increases to 26 for those who have worked over ten years. Unused vacation days may be carried over for up to three years. 

Working Hours and Overtime in Poland

The maximum working hours are 8 hours per working day, and and average of 40 hours a week. Work hours exceeding this are classified as overtime and must be paid at a rate of 150% to 200% above expected salary, or by an amount of paid leave days equivalent to that amount. Annually, overtime hours should not exceed 150 hours, unless otherwise agreed. 

Sick leave in Poland

Employees in Poland are eligible for 33 days of paid sick leave from their employer, provided the employee can provide valid documents from a doctor or hospital.

In both of the above circumstances, should the absence continue for longer, the state will continue to issue further payments. 

Maternity/Paternity Leave in Poland

Parental leave in Poland is covered by the state, not the employer. The length of paid maternity leave in Poland changes according to the number of children a parent has. Maternity leave begins at a minimum of 20 weeks and can go up to as many as 37 weeks for the 5th child.  

Maternity leave can begin up to six weeks before birth. In total, a 14-week maternity leave is required for new mothers. A mother can return to work earlier if the father takes the remaining mandatory days of maternity leave.  

Parents who have been employed with a company for over six months may take an additional 36 months of unpaid childcare leave. 

Fathers may take two weeks of paid paternity leave before the child turns 2, and they must give notice at least one week before their leave.

Both employees and employers in Poland are required to give a percentage of their earnings towards social services such as health insurance, workplace injury compensation, pension, etc. The percentage may vary according to the industry, but can be estimated to around 14% of standard salary for the employee and 18% for the employer. 

As of January 2022, individual income tax is 17% for annual income amounts between PLN30,000 and PLN120,000. Amounts above this are subject to a tax rate of PLN15,300 + 32% (for the excess over PLN120,000).
