  • First leniecy applicant fined due to negligent non-cooperation

    On April 14, 2010 the Austrian Cartel Court released a decision1 imposing an overall fine of EUR 1.52 million on four companies participating in a cartel in the printing chemical sector. The investigation of the cartel by the Austrian Federal Competition Authority was triggered by a leniency application. As in other jurisdictions, if all requirements are fulfilled no fine will be imposed on the first leniency applicant for his cooperation. However, in this particular case, the first leniency applicant negligently failed to fulfil its obligation of full cooperation. Consequently, the Austrian Federal Competition Authority requested the Austrian Cartel Court to impose a fine on the first leniency applicant.

  • Hungary: The value of information – highest fine ever imposed on an association of undertakings

    On 11 January 2016, the Hungarian Competition Authority (Authority) announced the highest fine it has ever imposed on an association on account of horizontal information exchange. The fine of ca. EUR 12.7 million (HUF 4 billion) was imposed on the Hungarian Banking Association (Association) for the Association's database, which included not only strategically relevant, but also confidential data. Undoubtedly, the continuous flow of information is one of the key drivers of business and economic growth. The more unconstrained the flow of information becomes, the more conscious undertakings must be in order to identify the inherent legal risks of information exchange and its lawful limits. The Authority's decision is one of the most recent indicators of the relevance of such considerations. read more...

  • Hungary: Restrictions on use of temporary staff agency workers

    The use of temporary staff agencies and agency workers has increased steadily in Hungary over the past two decades. The legal relationship in this context is usually referred to as 'workforce lending', as it is understood that the agency's assignment of workers to the undertaking that uses them constitutes lending. Although the basic concept of workforce lending and detailed regulations on this tripartite legal relationship were officially adopted in 2001 as part of the harmonisation of Hungarian law with EU law, the concept had actually been in use much earlier. read more...
