Hungarian legislation follows both European legislation and international trends in the field of labour law while showing characteristics inherent in national regulation.
Employment relations in Hungary are governed by the Act I of 2012 on Labour Code and other labour law legislation, collective bargaining agreements and individual employment contracts. In the context of labour disputes in Hungary, courts generally protect employees’ rights by interpreting the provisions of the Labour Code, collective bargaining agreements and employment contracts often in favour of the employees. Overall, litigation trends reflect a decrease in the number of lawsuit initiated by blue-collar employees, while more and more white-collar employees, particularly executives and key-employees, are initiating labour disputes against their employers before courts in Hungary.
