We understand that good employees are fundamental to the success of any business. Businesses need to know how to retain and motivate the right personnel whilst identifying and, if necessary, parting company with poor performers. This requires a comprehensive knowledge of the intricacies of local labour laws and tried and tested HR policies and procedures.
Our employment practice covers the whole spectrum of employment related issues. We assist our clients throughout the whole life cycle of employment relationships including, if it comes to it, with employment litigation. We add value to our clients’ businesses by keeping track of and regularly updating our clients on changes in the law. We will give practical advice on how these changes affect our clients’ businesses, and assist them to implement any necessary changes.
Our clientele includes both local and multinational companies. This gives us a great deal of experience in localizing and implementing global standards and solutions while maximizing any benefits available under local law.
We advise on compliance, transactional, contentious and stand-alone matters, restructurings, employee incentive systems, HR policies, company management matters, tax issues, whistleblowing schemes, industrial relations and internal investigations. Our assistance and experience is not limited to Hungarian law; we also advise on EU legislation.
