Wage quantities for the year 2021
The new year 2021 brings, in addition to legislative changes, also changes in wage variables!
With effect from 1 January 2021, the minimum wage will be 57% of the average monthly nominal wage of an employee in the Slovak economy published by the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic for the calendar year two years preceding the calendar year for which the monthly minimum wage is determined.
Ie. 57% of the average wage for 2019, which was set at € 1,092 (originally 60% of the average wage was set):
• € 623 per month for an employee paid a monthly salary,
• € 3,580 for each hour worked by the employee.
• The employer is obliged to provide his employees in an employment relationship for the work performed in the amount of the minimum wage entitlement determined for the degree of difficulty of the respective job.
Even in 2021, six levels of work intensity remain in force, but there is a change in the calculation of individual wage claims (Section 120 (4) of the Labor Code).
The amount of the minimum wage entitlement of the employee remunerated by the monthly wage for the relevant grade for the relevant calendar year is the sum of the difference between the amount of the monthly minimum wage determined for the relevant calendar year and the amount of the monthly minimum wage determined for 2020 wages.
