Hungary's labor authority found that 73% of the over 18,000 employers it surveyed last year had violated some of the labor regulations, the National Economy Ministry said today. The ministry added that the ratio was slightly higher than to the previous year’s 70%.

The ministry’s report revealed that 11,540 people were employed illegally in 2014, 36% of them in the construction sector. Other sectors which experienced high levels of illegal employment included security services and retail trade.

The irregularities identified also included the violation of rules concerning working hours and holidays, the calculation of wages and timely payments, as well as work-related administration, the report added.
