, Index number: EUR 27/2378/2020

Although the law prohibits gender-based discrimination in Hungary, women continue to experience widespread discrimination on the grounds of their sex/gender and for being a mother both in the workplace and in the labour market more generally. This report examines the discrimination pregnant women and women with young children face in their workplace. Besides highlighting the loopholes in the legislation and the non-compliance of employers with their legal obligations, the research also examines the avenues for remedies that are available for victims. The report also formulates recommendations for the Hungarian authorities and for employers, that could help end employment discrimination on the grounds of gender/sex and motherhood.
