EC closes proceedings against Hungary in gender discrimination rules

The European Commission on Wednesday said it closed legal proceedings against Hungary for incorrectly implementing national measures on the adoption of EU rules against gender discrimination in employment.

The Commission launched infringement proceedings against Hungary for incorrectly transposing a directive on the principle of equal opportunities and equal treatment of men and women in matters of employment and occupation. Following the Commission's intervention, Hungary adopted a new law amending existing legislation in July 2009. The move brought national law in line with the directive, the Commission said.

The Commission dropped other issues, including compensation for victims of discrimination, after Hungary clarified the applicable rules within the national legal system as a whole. (MTI-Econews)
