The rates for minimum hourly and monthly wages are set by the regulation of the Slovak Government for each calendar year and apply to all employees.
As of 1 January 2009, the hourly and monthly rates for the minimum wage are increased as follows:
Minimum hourly wage: 1.698 Euros
Minimum monthly wage: 295.5 Euros
Effect on employers
Employers must comply with the prescribed minimum wage amounts. The average monthly salary in Slovakia is 705 Euros, so it is likely that the majority of employers already comply with this legislation.
