LABOUR LAW IN FOCUS CONFERENCE IN THE BELGIAN BUSINESS CLUB
27 March 2017
As the fresh members of the Belgian Business Club in Hungary we had the opportunity to introduce ourselves in the framework of a presentation.
We chose labour law as the subject of the presentation since this is a field of law which effects the majority of the companies and the lack of due processes and documentation can cause serious financial consequences.
First, Richard stressed out that non-compliance with labour law is two-way risk: on the one hand, there is an external risk meaning that authorities can impose fines towards the company and on the other, as an internal risk the employee may initiate proceedings against the organization.
After showing surprising statistics about the ratio of employment and work safety related infringements, Richard talked about the most common hiring mistakes and lost opportunities at hiring. He chose real-life case from our practice to show that even a small mistake can cause a serious payment obligation.
In the last part of the presentation, Anita covered the topic of the termination of labour contracts by mentioning some lethal firing errors. We hope that by remembering the stories told, the members of the audience can avoid long and costly labour litigations.
After the presentation, we received the best compliment that a lawyer can get as one of the participants told that this was the first law related presentation he heard and was not boring.
