The critical issue for proper functioning of civil services (CS) in Poland is proper normalization of legal status of civil servants, notably those assigned to managerial positions and other independent positions related to performance of tasks for the State, by issuing decisions, their procurement or execution. Civil Service Act dated 24 August 2006 has, however, some shortcomings. Among most serious are: too narrow itemized scope of Act, no implementation of equal access to CS principle, which affects the transparency of recruitment to CS and competition status of CS qualification procedure. Some other regulations, concerning remunerations, working time in CS, and some solutions of collective employment law, are to be altered. Based on discussions the thesis can be put forward that deeper amendment to Civil Service Act, as well as other regulations, is required to normalize indicidual elements governing civil servants' legal status, one compliant with international law.
