In the period before the Second World War labour inspectors had public-law status, and their employment was regulated by the Act on the State Civil Service of 1922. Contemporary employment relations of labour inspectors are regulated by the Act on the National Labour Inspectorate of 2007 PiP and the Labour Code. Labour inspectors are employees, employed at the first stage on the basis of an employment contract. The target basis for the employment inspectors is a nomination and in the case of managerial positions, appointment. The establishment of an employment relationship with labour inspectors as well as its content deviate in many respects from a contractual employment relationship regulated by the provisions of the Labour Code. Public-law elements can be found in the employment of a state labour inspector — non-contractual employment basis, special obligations and restrictions related to a public office. The Act of 2007 does not regulate the recruitment procedure for the position of labour inspectors, which is contrary to the constitution.
