Amendment to employment-related acts

The Hungarian Parliament has recently decided on the amendment of several acts regulating certain employment related matters such as the Act on Occupational Safety, for the purpose of ensuring better compliance with the EU laws. According to the new provisions, the physician working at the company providing occupational health services to the employer, might be involved in the investigation of an accident at work, and in case of a major accident, his participation would be obligatory. In addition, an election shall be organized to appoint an occupational safety representative of the employees, if at least 20 employees are employed at the company.
