Article No. 2 of The Constitution of The Republic of Poland (1997) states that Poland „shall be a democratic state ruled by law and implementing the principles of social justice”. Social justice is one of the principles of government and, according to lawyers, does not constitute grounds for subjective claims. Contemporary understanding of the Ulpian idea of justice (suum cuique): giving everyone his due, derives from the conception of distributive justice by J. Rawls, which is based on proportional equality. This paper discusses the levels of four social justice indicators that Poland now deals with: income inequality, tax system, unemployment and poverty. The structure of the socio-economic system in Poland, which was founded and established during a period of transition, (presented in paper by statistical data and international comparisons) does not support the conclusion that Poland indeed fully embodies the principles of social justice.
