New forms of employment in Hungary

Labour-market practicality versus labour law rational?

Attila Kun, Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary

This paper deals with atypical forms of employment in Hungary such as cooperatives (school cooperative groups; social cooperatives) and active labour market programmes. They are used to offer cost-effective (subsidized), flexible, and customized labour force. They are unique non-standard forms of employment and based on pure labour market-oriented reasoning.
