Breaking New Ground in Hungary: Summary of Selected Provisions of the Hungarian Labour Legislation
[Excerpt] Hungarian labour law has gone through significant changes in the last decade and become one of the most developing areas of Hungarian law. Since the end of the communist regime, the labour law legislation has had to cope with the challenges of the new social and economic system. As a result of Hungary’s accession to the EU in 2004, Hungarian labour law has been almost fully harmonized with the applicable EU laws. Employee protection rules, the general principle of anti-discrimination work force lending, and provisions concerning working from home have also become part of the Labour Code.
