General description of (intended) objectives and strategies
The main objectives of the government with the current measure was to introduce new forms of employment (i.e. temporary agency work) that would promote adaptability to changes on the labour market so that both employers and employees can respond in a flexible way to economic challenges. Temporary agency work can be e?ectively used as an active labour market measure to facilitate the integration of the long-term unemployed into the world of work, while before 2004 temporary work could be carried out only by pro?t-oriented ?rms in Hungary. In April 2004 the Labour Code, the Act on Public Interest Organisations and the Act on Promotion of Employment and Support of the Unemployed (Employment Act) were amended to allow non-pro?t, public interest organisations to o? er temporary agency work for disadvantaged people. The act in question added a new sub-heading to the Employment Act (16/B ?) laying down the legal basis for supporting the employment of unemployed people in the framework of temporary agency work. / / / http://econ.core.hu/file/download/HLM2005/TheHungarianLabourMarket_2005_onefile.pdf, p132-134 /
