Central and eastern European HR - employment law in Hungary

Who should attend

This course is relevant to international HR managers, directors with responsibility for employees in Hungary and in-house employment lawyers. It will also be useful to managers and directors who anticipate entering the Hungarian market and who need to be aware of their responsibilities to their people.


Hungary has a very complex employment and labor law. There are lots of employment issues in Hungary where the law is silent, so court rulings shall be duly considered also in the day‑to‑day employment management. If the strict rules on termination are disregarded, unfair dismissal claims can result in awards of 12 months of salary or in certain cases compulsory reinstatement.

Led by a Hungarian employment lawyer, this course provides an overview of the implications of employing people in this jurisdiction and arm you with awareness of likely pitfalls so that you are not caught out.
