The aim of the paper is to verify the hypothesis that minimum wage may have negative impact
on employment in Poland, at least for some workers groups and regions. After having reviewed
theoretical literature on minimum wage and having discussed stylized facts on minimum wage in
Poland, the authors define econometric model to check the impact of minimum wage on
employment in Poland and then discuss the results. The main conclusion of the study is that while
minimum wage legislation is not very important for the whole labour market performance it may
create adverse effects to employment of some vulnerable groups like young workers.
