In March 2020, a state of epidemic threat was announced in Poland, followed by a state of epidemic in connection with the spread of an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, called COVID-19. In relation to the assessment of the state of epidemic, solutions were introduced by law to prevent and counter-act the spread of the said virus and to combat the disease caused by it. These solutions were also applicable on the labour market. Among them was for instance the introduction of the possibility of working from outside a permanent workplace, that is remote work. The data presented in this publication were obtained from ‘the Survey on the demand for labour’.
