Małgorzata Gawrycka

Abstract


The countries of Central and Eastern Europe in the 1990s pursued the transformation processes which were to result in introducing systemic changes and building market economies. It was a process requiring adjustment of the regulatory and system framework to the requirements of the EU. One of the areas covered by the changes was the labour market. The reforms related to the functioning of national labour markets necessitated taking many decisions, often difficult ones, as they were associated with incurring high social costs.
The aim of this study is to examine how the processes of labour legislation deregulation influenced the situation in the labour markets of individual countries of Central and Eastern Europe, and in particular their employment levels. The study was based on data from years 2004 and 2015. The study used available Eurostat statistics databases. Elements of descriptive statistics were also used as a tool.
