Abstract: In a system of law, sanctions are defined as a set of negative legal effects that should apply when an addressee of a legal norm fails to abide by an order or prohibition regarding certain conduct. Their essence lies in the coercion applied in order to enforce obedience to a norm mandating specific behaviour. Thus understood, sanctions appear in various branches of the law (civil, administrative, labour, and disciplinary law alike) and, accordingly, also vary in nature. A tendency can currently be observed towards moving away from repressive sanctions; these are gradually being replaced with other forms of liability, particularly with civil and administrative sanctions. In light of the above-mentioned, it is worth taking a look at sanctions from the perspective of ius puniendi, in order to delimit the boundaries of criminal liability, misdemeanour liability, and administrative liability under the Polish system.
