Unveiling the bill at a news briefing, Law and Justice MP Czesław Hoc said the proposal had been drawn up as "an initiative by the employers," public broadcaster Polish Radio's IAR news agency reported.
Hoc added the proposed law had been drafted "out of responsibility and common sense, in the interests of public health and the economy."
The bill consists of three central provisions, the lawmakers told reporters.
First, employers would be allowed to check the vaccination status of staff members, "but without being able to negatively adjust their pay or employment status," Hoc stressed.
However, employers would be entitled to move the unvaccinated from customer-facing positions such as checkouts to warehouse jobs, for example, Hoc said, as quoted by the IAR news agency.
Second, companies with fully jabbed workforces would be exempt from all COVID-19-related restrictions, the lawmakers told the news conference.
And third, healthcare providers would be allowed to make vaccination compulsory for their workers under the bill, they said, adding that employers in other sectors would not be able to do so.
Hoc said he hoped Poland's parliament would begin debating the bill at a session starting on December 1, the state PAP news agency reported.
