hence finding someone who knows what they're doing. Seriously when dealing with a criminal/crooked employer you either have to take one of two routes both of which i advocate depending on resources.

There is a school at the moment refusing to pay 1500PLN of due money to my colleague. They do that, it's like a charade for them. Losers!!

excellent prediction.
anyway, take option 2 then or choose something entirely different but do something.
Maybe look at it like this: If a thief took something from you, you'd want to take it back. If a thief tried to take something from you, you wouldn't willingly give it, especially if you knew where that thief was vulnerable. I look at these kind of operations as thieves.

The best thing is preparedness. Quote a few legal provisions or namedrop from authorities like PIP (PaƄstwo Inspektorat Pracy), it works. Do some research, show them that they are wrong.

Even be economical with the truth. Say, well, that's not what the tax office said. Watch them change their tune. When I threatened my school, with the backing of experts, they quickly snapped out of their nonsense and got their act together.

You gotta fight for your rights these days.
