The Polish prime minister has added his weight to a bill that would allow employers to verify that an employee is vaccinated against Covid-19.

Mateusz Morawiecki also said the bill stands for the right of employees to work in a safe environment.

"There is a parliamentary initiative to implement such a measure, and I am also in favour of it," he said on Tuesday, adding that the bill would not create a right for business owners, but, instead, would lead to a safe working environment for employees.

Morawiecki added that government MPs would only be asked to support the bill if the opposition opposed it.
