LGBT housing discrimination: Ambiguous from past to now.
Laws in force in Poland do not offer protection against LGBT discrimination in housing. However, there haven’t been any recorded cases regarding this, therefore we couldn’t know what the court’s reaction would’ve been to such a situation

LGBT employment discrimination: Sexual orientation and gender identity from Dec 2022 to now.
Articles 11-3 and 18-3a of the Labour Code (1997), as amended in 2003, prohibit direct or indirect discrimination on the basis of "sexual orientation" in employment. Article 94(2b) establishes the employer’s duty to act against such discrimination. Under Article 8(1), the prohibition on discrimination based on "sexual orientation" is contained in the Law on Equal Treatment (2010) applies to employment and access to labour market instruments and services. In 2023, the Court of Justice of the European Union declared in a case from Poland (J.K. v TP S.A., Case No. C-356/21) (2023) that freelance workers are also protected by EU law prohibiting discrimination on the grounds of "sexual orientation" in employment. In December of 2022, Joanna ?elek won her case against her employer in regards to transgender discrimination in the workplace, effectively protecting transgender people in the workplace

LGBT housing discrimination: Sexual orientation and gender identity from Jan 1, 2011 to now.
Poland itself doesn’t ban discrimination on sexual orientation nor gender identity, however since it is a part of the EU, it’s laws apply automatically - effectively making both discrimination kinds illegal. (Also because there haven’t been any cases)

LGBT discrimination: Illegal from Jan 1, 2003 to now.
"The Labour Code has contained anti-discrimination protections in employment since 2003. This prohibition is also reflected in the new Equal Treatment Law of 2010, which entered into force on 1 January 2011. The Equal Treatment Law bans discrimination in employment based on sex (in Poland, after change of legal gender, transgender persons are subject to the provisions on discrimination based on sex) and sexual orientation.
