Since 70ies the fordist model of industrial relations, which had emerged after the Second World War and ensured stable employment and social guarantees for employees, has collapsed. Globalised economy dictates new, flexible labour regimes. Enterprises strive to gain freedom to dismiss employees, if their further employment is not viable. The idea of flexicurity, or flexible security, assumes that public policy compensate these tendencies. Agreements ought to be flexible, but also offer transparent rules of the game. People losing jobs can count on support in requalification and seeking new employment opportunities. They should also obtain benefits making possible to cope with a difficult situation. It appears that these assumptions are difficult to fulfil, especially in new EU member states, including Poland.
