Portugal - Changes in minimum wage and social security system - January 31, 2017

The government’s proposal to increase the minimum wage to 557 euro passed by the end of 2016 and was signed by the country’s president. Legislation enshrining that increase is in force from 1 January 2017. In line with this proposal, additional legislation to reduce employers’ social security contributions on workers earning the minimum wage was signed by the president, after the measure had been agreed by employer organisations and one of the two largest trade union confederations, in statutory tripartite talks.
