Through the amendment of the Labor Code that entered into force on January 1, employees can assert their rights more effectively. In several cases, the employer must prove that he acted legally, and in case of abuse of the right, for example, the court can reinstate the employee. Because of all this, in many cases, employers must be extra careful before taking measures, warns Baker McKenzie.

The amendment to the Labor Code that entered into force on January 1 was carried out in order to implement the EU directives on the balance of work and private life, as well as on transparent and predictable working conditions, and is also justified by the practical experience gained in the ten years since the entry into force of the Labor Code, it was said. at Baker McKenzie’s international workshop, where changes in the labor law regulations of Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia were reviewed.

“Through the amendments, employee rights will be enforced more effectively in court. They can make dismissals more difficult, and companies must take measures to respond to employees’ requests for flexible working or parental leave.”

said dr. Nóra Óváry-Papp, senior lawyer in the labor law group of the Baker McKenzie law firm.
