Budapest, May 26 (MTI) – The green opposition LMP is launching a legal aid service for civil servants laid off and replaced by fostered workers.
Co-leader Bernadett Szel told a press conference about civil servants who were fired and then rehired as fostered workers for the same job at a far lower wage. In other cases, the reason cited for the lay-off was that fostered workers could also do the job, she added.
Citing such practices as unlawful, Szel invited the laid-off to contact the legal aid service for help. An online forum is being launched for people who do not want to reveal their identity, she added.
LMP will propose extra 1 billion forints be set aside in next year’s budget for labour audits.
Szel also called for the establishment of a parliamentary committee to investigate any unlawful practices.
