People With Disabilities

An overview of the facilities, organisations and support available for people with mobility, sight or hearing impairments or other disabilities in Hungary...

Hungary ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in July 2007, and is working to ensure that Hungarian laws and codes comply with the Convention. In practical terms, however, wheelchair accessibility is not always available, and employment opportunities are limited.

The Disability Discrimination Act

It is against the law for employers to discriminate against disabled people for a reason related to their disability, and employers should ensure that disabled employees are not disadvantaged by any physical feature of the workplace.

Any kind of discrimination can be directly reported to the Authority of Equal Treatment (EBH).
