The most important legal source of the Polish civil service is the Constitution of the Republic of Poland. The significant provisions of the Constitution regarding the civil service are the following:
Polish citizens enjoying full public rights shall have a right of access to the public service based on the principle of equality.
Section (2) No judge, public prosecutor, officer of the civil service, soldier on active military service or functionary of the police or of the services of State protection shall exercise the mandate of a Deputy.
Section (1) A corps of civil servants shall operate in the organs of government administration in order to ensure a professional, diligent, impartial and politically neutral discharge of the State's obligations.
Section (2) The Prime Minister shall be the superior of such corps of civil servants.

The Civil Service Act is the second, most important legal basis of the civil service. Due to a high decentralization of personnel policy in the civil service, the act serves more as a framework. It is supplemented by many regulations (issued by e.g. the Prime Minister, the Head of Civil Service and the Directors General of each office).
