Minimum wage growth


According to a press release of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, the coalition partners agreed to increase the minimum wage next year from 13350 CZK to 14600 CZK, which represents 40,5% of the average wage in the Czech Republic.

At the same time, the increase in the minimum wage is conditional on the growth of the guaranteed wage levels. The guaranteed wage is a wage or salary scaled according to the complexity, responsibility, and effort that the employee was entitled during an 40-hour working time. The individual guaranteed wages according to the group of work, into which the guaranteed wage is divided, are thus increased by 9% on average.
