    Our Law Firm has broad expertise in the field of collective labour law. We regularly advise our clients in connection with collective labour law issues, as well as participate in wage negotiations and negotiations during strikes carried out with trade unions. Taking the dispositive regulation of the Labour Code into account, we oftentimes give advice on drafting and amendments of collective bargaining agreements and their negotiations with trade unions. Further, our clients receive assistance in connection with the establishment of trade unions and/or workers' councils.

  • International Matters

    Due to our exclusive membership with Ius Laboris, we participate in international (labour) projects on a daily basis. The focus of these projects has a wide range of variety where the key challenges are to provide our clients with advice and solutions that are in compliance with the Hungarian labour laws and may be filled into the global structures. We have taken part in several projects, including the setting up a European Company, reviewing bonus and incentive schemes, advising on employee mobility issues and implementing cross-border transfer of undertaking plan.

  • Immigration

    Questions in connection with the employment of foreign persons regularly arise in the frame of international and other projects, as well. In connection with employment within the territory of the EU we usually advise our clients not only on the possible employment solutions (e.g. assignment, "double" employment), but also in connection with the related social security and pension law issues. We have extensive expertise in connection with the residence and employment of non-EU workers, since we assisted our clients on many occasions in connection with obtaining work and residence permits, furthermore, permits for family reunification, etc.
