• Justice in labor matters in the light of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland

  • Possibility to appoint attorneys-in-fact in matters relating to labor and social security law
    In proceedings relating to labor and social security law, pursuant to Art. 86 of the Code of Civil Procedure (CCP), the parties may act before the court in person or through an attorney. In these cases, however, the provisions provide for a number of differences. In particular, Art. 465 of the Code of Civil Procedure, the scope of persons who may be attorneys in this separate proceeding has been extended. On the other hand, if the representation of the State Treasury or another legal person is performed by the General Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Poland, as a rule, this excludes the possibility of appointing a trial attorney.

  • Definition of an unduly collected benefit in the light of the provisions of the Act on social assistance
    The aim of the article is to explain how to understand the term "unduly collected benefit" in the light of the provisions of the Act of March 12, 2004 on social assistance, especially since the legislator defined very similar concepts (unduly collected benefit and unduly received benefits) also in other legal acts and they are understood differently in each of them.

Moreover, this issue must be noticed in the jurisprudence of administrative courts. The article is an attempt to answer the question whether the use of analogies and auxiliary use of other definitions in matters relating to unduly collected benefits is permissible.
