Companies have raised many questions regarding the practical application of the new complaint law, according to profitline.hu.

The Act on Complaints, Public Interest Notifications, and Rules for Reporting Abuses (Complaints Act), adopted at the end of May, imposes several obligations on businesses.

The new law gives the opportunity to report workplace abuses and irregularities by name or anonymously and requires many companies to establish a mandatory abuse reporting system.

Medium-sized companies (from 250 employees), large companies, and companies subject to the anti-money laundering law were given a grace period until July 24 to adapt their processes in accordance with the new regulations.  

Smaller businesses (between 50 and 250 employees) have until December 17 to comply.

"For many businesses, it wasn't entirely clear from the start which hat they fit into. After all, the legislator has set special deadlines for companies with 50 and 250 employees and for companies larger than this, and regardless of size, which are subject to the anti-money laundering law, to comply with the new regulations," experts said.
