Labor & Employment Law
Labor & Employment Law
The strength of Hungary’s labor market is one of the reasons many foreign investors chose to make Hungary their home base in the European Union. Hungarian workers are well-educated, highly skilled, and integrate well with global teams. Identifying, hiring, and retaining such talent is crucial for any company, even when technological change disrupts many aspects of the traditional employer-employee relationship.
Labor law is a sensitive area that interweaves the lives of companies and individuals and often presents situations that require unique solutions. It is an area of the law where an informed human sensibility is essential. Our experienced Labor and Employment Law Group is particularly well-suited to help clients navigate the legal and cultural landscape of this area of the law in Hungary and to create a flourishing employee culture that is fully compliant with relevant laws and regulations.
More about this service
Employment Law-Related Contracts
Our labor law service includes advising companies on establishing and terminating employment relationships, conducting restructurings and large-scale lay-offs, non-competition agreements, and executive compensation schemes, and responding to all aspects of HR-related questions.
Our approach is client-focused. We take the time to understand our client’s needs, as well as their goals. We work with them to define a plan and implement the solutions identified. We prepare drafts of employment contracts, negotiate on our client’s behalf with the relevant counterparties, and remain engaged until an agreement is reached.
Preparing Policies for Companies
In an age of significant liability for companies, we work with our clients to develop policies that help them define and shape the culture of their organizations so that liability can be minimized.
We try to find the most practical solution for our clients with our unique approach. KNP LAW’s labor law team advises companies on day-to-day employment issues and prepares policies that create predictability for our clients and their employees.
We understand, of course, that preparing a policy and implementing that policy within a company are two different things. Accordingly, our labor and employment team is ready to engage with our client’s HR departments to ensure policies are appropriately implemented and reinforced through training, seminars, and workshops.
