Labour law updates and recommendations

New templates of personal questionnaires

As a result of the new rules on the keeping of employee documentation as well as introduction of the new principles of data protection employers should change the templates of personal questionnaires for candidates and employees. The templates are available on the website of the Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Policy:

The most important changes include:

  • with respect to candidates, the templates no longer include the section on additional abilities and interests,
  • with respect to employees, the information about the person who should be notified in the event of an accident at work has become optional (i.e. the employee may refuse to provide this information).
