Abstract/Citation: Provides that any employee of 18 years of age or over employed in a full-time position is entitled to receive a wage which is not less than a minimum per month, day or hour, as the case may be. An employee in a part-time position is entitled to a partial (proportional) minimum wage. Sets forth the components of the wage (basic or combined wage, cost-of-living allowance and fixed additional payments other than family allowance, shift-work allowance, etc.). The minimum wage shall be increased in accordance with the rate of a cost-of-living allowance, a price increase compensation or a collectively agreed wage addition. Provides for annual updating of the minimum wage. The Law also contains provisions on making claims, payment of compensatory wages, calculation of the average wage, protection of rights under the Law, penalties, fixing a minimum wage for youth, and the adoption of regulations.
