BUSINESS BRIEFS

Cabinet passes new labour code

THE REVISED labour code was passed by the cabinet on March 12 with only minor changes. As planned, it includes increased overtime allowance, compulsory employer insurance contributions for part-time workers, and simplified procedures for dismissing staff.

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

The new labour code is expected to reach parliament in April.
