IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Hungary has implemented new regulations in order to stay in compliance with a European Union directive on intracompany transfers.
What does the change mean? The Labor Office will require that non-EU nationals transferring from within the EU to work in Hungary for more than three months have, among other provisions, an employment contract establishing that the employee will not be paid less than Hungarian employees in similar jobs, relevant educational or professional certifications, health insurance, a valid address in Hungary and financial means of support.
Background: Hungary implemented the regulations in order to stay in compliance with a 2014 EU directive on intracompany transfers. Among new requirements for non-EU nationals being sent to work in Hungary for more than three months:
Documents must be submitted at least 20 days before the start of employment. Non-EU nationals transferring to Hungary for less than three months will not be required to obtain a separate Hungarian permit, provided that the transferee has a valid permit issued by another EU member state and the activities the transferee will be performing in Hungary are covered by his or her permit.
BAL Analysis: The implementation of the changes described above came one month after Hungary implemented new rules for posted workers. Businesses should take note of the changes both for intracompany transferees and posted workers, and should contact BAL with any questions about remaining in compliance with any of the new regulations.
