Bulgaria - Minimum wage increase foreseen in 2017 - September 30, 2016

The three-year budget forecast envisages a gradual increase of the minimum monthly wage to BGN 460 (235 euro) during 2017. The government wants to take into account several parameters when calculating by how much the minimum monthly wage can be increased. However, there is no mechanism for this approved by neither employers, nor trade unions. Therefore, the state is moving forward in an administrative manner, in accordance with the stipulations of the Labour Code.
