Such cases, as Michał Koniecocki, director of the Immigration Law Department at Sadkowski i Wspólnicy, noted in an interview with, are not unique at all.

There are a record number of applications for a residence card, the shortage of employees in many branches of our economy is huge, and many employers employ foreigners not full-time, but only one second, or even one third of a full-time job.

In her opinion, the provision discriminates against non-foreigners.
