The analysis is the voice in a debate on the desired shape of state policy on Polish labour market. It was developed on the basis of the text of expert analysis carried out on commission of the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy in August 2007. Theses on the reform of labour market policy are based on an assumption that its main objective should be the growth of employment through the creation of conditions facilitating the development and maintenance of a greater number of better jobs. Attention is drawn, among many, to the necessity to: pass from labour market policy to employment policy; change the approach of the state to the labour market and develop new strategy, which is commonly known as workfare state; further deregulation of the labour market; maintaining balance in flexicurity, and restructuring active labour market policy (ALMP). Moreover, the issue of the improvement of the functioning of public employment services was also addressed.
