From January 2021, the minimum wage in Poland is PLN 2,800 gross and the minimum hourly wage is PLN 18.30 gross. We explain who else will benefit from this increase.
The provisions of the Minimum Wage Act stipulate that an employee’s minimum wage for the entire month worked may not be less than the minimum wage set for any given year. In 2020 this will be PLN 2,600 gross. From January 1, 2021 it will be 200 PLN gross more, ie 2800 PLN gross. The hourly rate is also increasing. Currently the gross is PLN 17. In 2021 it will be 1.30 PLN more, or 18.30 PLN.
The minimum wage applies only to full-time employees. They do not apply to civil law contracts, ie assignments or specific employment contracts. For example, the boss can conclude a mandate contract and pay, for example, 1,800, 2,000 or 2,500 PLN gross, which is lower than the minimum wage in our country in the new year.
An increase in the minimum wage also means an increase in other benefits. Check out the details in our gallery.
