Roche glosses over Polish unfair employment claims

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Roche has minimised claims that it is flouting labour rights in Poland by employing people on temporary contracts or requiring them to set up businesses and bill the company. "The great majority of our workforce in Poland is permanent Roche employees," the Swiss pharma group told Scrip, and noted that it employs around 1,000 people in Poland, mainly in administrative and commercial functions. Its Polish workforce has risen by about 20% over the past two years. It said that it did use contractors in some departments (such as IT), however, for "highly specialised services".
