Cabinet passes new labour code

Proposed amendments to the labour code were passed by the cabinet on March 12 with only minor changes. As planned, the new code will include increased overtime allowances, compulsory employer insurance contributions for part-time workers, and simplified procedures for dismissing staff.

However, it will not include measures to protect against discrimination based on sexual orientation. Hungarian Coalition Party MP and deputy speaker of parliament Pál Csáky had hoped to include such a measure, but was persuaded by the Christian Democrats to delay discussion on the issue.

The amendments to the labour code are expected to reach parliament in April.
