AmCham’s position on the planned modification of the Law on Labor Safety
- September 21, 2017
Companies and employees see the need for expanding new, flexible employment schemes in the coming years, which is partly induced by the wide-scale spread of digitalization that is rapidly transforming workplaces, ways of communication and work processes. AmCham is dedicated to presenting its related recommendations to decision-makers, and took the opportunity of the 6th AmCham-NGM working group meeting held in early June with István Lepsényi, State Secretary for Economic Regulation and other high-level representatives of the Ministry, to present regulatory concerns of AmCham member companies who consider to introduce or have introduced schemes of remote work for their employees. As a follow-up, the department of the Deputy State Secretary for the Labor Market worked out modifications to the Act XCIII of 1993 on Labor Safety and have asked AmCham for its position.
