Hungary -Plan to hire public workers out -July 02, 2015

The government has planned a modification of a law on public works (established in 2011) that could give local mayors the possibility of hiring out public workers to small- and medium-sized companies wishing to employ public workers as seasonal labourers. Workers that decline can be barred from performing public work for three months. Moreover, those agreeing to perform seasonal work will be put in a vulnerable position in that if they quit their jobs or if their job is terminated by mutual consent, they will be barred from performing public work for three months. The opposition labelled the plans as being part of a new feudalism.
