Hungary, the matter is less straight forward as it is suggested by analogies about bank robbery and murder in the comments and answers.
It potentially is, and you would most certainly not be prosecuted for it on criminal grounds, and the boss is likely depending on facts.
In general, Hungarian law presumes that the public engages in the pirating of artwork subject to copyrights. (I'm serious!) And it compensates the copyright owners by imposing a general data storage tax on all non-transitory storage medium, including thumb drives, memory cards, SSD's hard drives, optical disks etc. Accordingly, it is not a crime to create any copies of any copy right material as long as it does not create profit even indirectly.
Although, according to the Penal Code:
Infringement of copyright or rights related to copyright
Section 385 (1) Any person who infringes the copyright or related rights of another or others under the Copyright Act by causing pecuniary damage shall be punishable for a misdemeanor by imprisonment for a term of up to two years.
§ 385 (5) A person shall not commit an offense under paragraph (1) who infringes the copyright or related rights of another or others under the Copyright Act by making sharing for reproduction or for retrieval, provided that the act does not serve the purpose of obtaining profit even indirectly.
Accordingly, not only there is a high bar to hop in that the law requires that the infringing cause "pecuniary damage" which in many cases you may argue it does not, as someone who downloads does not necessarily intent to obtain the copyright art any cost; in fact, downloading copyright material is usually driven by financial reasoning rather than convenience considerations especially in 2021.
Those who would meet these high bars would also not be subject to the exemptions of paragraph 5 which allows infringement for the purposes of sharing the copyrighted material or sharing for the purposes of retrieving. This particular provision provides strong immunity against criminal culpability for the most typical uses of using torrent sites as long as such infringement "does not serve the purpose of obtaining profit even indirectly".
You used to be able to run into cops buying PSX games to their chip-tuned Playstation consoles in gaming shops in their uniforms more then one at the time. So you can imagine how seriously this is actually prosecuted.
And it probably goes hand-in-hand with the fact that the law allows one to go so far that a layman is not expectable to actually be aware of such nuances, for example, whether as part of their employ and generating profits for another would also make them culpable despite they did not generate profits for themselves and would only be compensated as they would be otherwise as part of their employment. It is very much reasonable to expect a judge would decide that a wage is not profits even for the purposes for this Section of the Penal Code, and you're off the hook. Even if it did find that the business profited from the act, and you therefore engaged in the creation of profits indirectly, there is a chance you would be found not be culpable having acted in "error", that is, you misunderstood the law because of its succinct form. (By the way "error" relieved a law professor in the U.S. about a tax code that he misunderstood despite being a law professor. There the argument was that, given his accolades, he should have had no difficulty understanding it, and not understanding it signals an issue in the law.)
Overall, since law enforcement and other authorities probably foresee these traps of prosecuting a case like this, they would likely not even get started. No case has reached media attention for years, and it would if someone would be prosecuted for copyright matters like these.
Civil liability could possibly work, but absent punitive damages or civil penalties, it is absolutely not worth it for any author or copyright holder to seek them. You would not receive more than the reasonable price of a copy of your copyrighted material.
All in all, you would probably be safe to install whatever your boss tells you even to a cop in uniform.
