Main areas for consulting

◊ Scheduling and working time optimization

Scheduling working time is one of the most complicated but also most important part of employment policy. We elaborate the most effective schedules considering the exact needs of the given organisation while respecting the legal framework. We help you to evade labour fines and – more importantly – to save wage expenses with better scheduling.

Drafting collective bargaining agreements

The collective bargaining agreement with a trade union or a works council’s agreement with the works council hides huge opportunities. A collective agreement is not an outdated, unnecessary document but could serve as a key to revolutionize employment in your organisation. The Hungarian Labour Code offers the parties wide possibilities to deviate from its provisions in collective agreements, even to the detriment of the employee. A properly drafted collective agreement can adjust the legal framework to the exact needs of the organisation to the common satisfaction of management and labour. We assist you throughout the whole negotiation process, from identifying the key issues to the wording of the text. If you already have a collective agreement, our experts prepare a proposal for its actualization. For the parties’ common invitation, we assist as mediators in resolving collective disputes.

◊ Remuneration systemsSzemelyzeti szaktanacsadas

Are you sure your employees are paid all remuneration the law and your contracts require? And you do not pay anything unnecessarily? We help you to set up or redesign the remuneration system, the processes of performance evaluation or inner carrier plans.

◊ Employment audit

If you use the same contract samples for long years or you haven’t reviewed your employment policies lately, you might need a full employment audit. We offer overall reviewing but we can also focus only to the strategic areas by your selection. We aim to set out processes which can be implemented to the given organisation’s every day practice.

◊ Drafting sample documents

We support our clients with a full set of documents necessary from hiring to firing. The samples are drafted for the exact demands and specialities of the organisation.
