ILF REGIONAL CONFERENCE IN VIENNA
30 May 2017
Our followers may know that our Law Firm is the Hungarian member of the International Law Firms (ILF) which is a worldwide association of independent small and mid-sized law firms. This year, the regional conference of the ILF was held in the beautiful city of Vienna. Our Austrian Colleagues organized a professional conference where more than 25 members represented themselves.
First, the participants had the opportunity to introduce their law firms and their specializations. Vienna attracted members not only from European, but also from more distant countries, such as the USA and Hong Kong.
After the short introductions, we heard interesting and useful presentations about the European Inheritance Regulation and about the possibilities of using the blockchain technology for smart contracts.
Our firm was an active participant regarding presentations as Anita made one about the international aspects of the General Data Protection Regulation. As under certain conditions, the GDPR shall apply for non-EU organizations, too, our presentation was hopefully helpful also for our non-European Colleagues.
We think that the conference was a big success which is the merit of the Buder&Herberstein Law Firm, so we thank you for their hospitability and professionalism. We look forward to meet our Colleagues at the next annual conference.

In this short article we collected five interesting cases from the recent past. The wide discretionary powers of the data protection authority is well illustrated by the fact that sometimes the GDPR fine was only EUR 2000, but in another case a company has been fined for EUR 11,5 Million!

LAWFUL DISMISSAL IN HUNGARY - PART V: PROTECTION AGAINST DISMISSAL
In the previous articles on the lawful dismissal, we discussed that, ranging from the employee’s behaviour to the employer’s reorganization, there can be many legitimate reasons for dismissal by the employer. However, irrespective of the legitimate reason, the employment relationship cannot be terminated if the employee is protected against dismissal by law (i.e. the Labour Code). From our article, you can learn about these protections.Read more »
