End of Loosening of Labor Code Rules

New Legislation Enacted

Author: Zoltán Csernus, Attorney-at-Law – VJT & Partners Law Firm

The loosening of Labor Code rules, which took effect in March 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic, is cancelled for the period after June 30, 2020. The working time frames (periods where the daily working time can be more or less than eight hours, but in average remains eight hours per day and thus no overtime payment is required) which were introduced during the COVID lockdown are not affected. Such working time frames will expire as previously set forth by the employers or by mutual agreements.
