2012. évi I. törvény a Munka Törvénykönyvéről
Act I of 2012 on the Labour Code
The employer, if planning to carry out collective dismissals, shall initiate consultations with the works council. C
The employer’s obligation to consult the works council shall apply until the conclusion of an agreement, or failing this 15 days after the beginning of negotiations.
In order to reach an agreement between the employer and works council, the negotiations shall, at least, cover:
- the possible ways and means of avoiding collective redundancies;
- the principles of redundancies;
- the means of mitigating the consequences; and
- the reduction of the number of employees affected.
The use of this part of the legislation is not a common practice. It is a bit like mediation. Employers usually use just what is compulsory according to the law.
