Bulgaria - High Administrative Court revokes minimum wage decision - May 31, 2017

The High Administrative Court has annulled the government’s decree that set minimum wage at 460 BGN for 2017. The case had been initiated on complaint from employer associations: Bulgarian Industrial Capital Association, BCCI, and Confederation of Employers and Industrialists in Bulgaria. They claimed that the decision was taken without a preliminary discussion with them as required by law. BCCI said that given the importance of the minimum wage for both the employers and the workers, its establishment by the government with agreement only with trade unions is against the national and European rules and is not in the interest of the constructive partnership.
