Lithuania has a government-mandated minimum wage. No worker in Lithuania should be paid less then this minimum pay rate.
Employers in Lithuania who do not pay the Minimum Wage may be subject to punishment by the government of Lithuania.


According to the Labour Code of the Republic of Lithuania (Article 144), the working time may not exceed 40 hours per week, therefore the monthly wage is calculated on the basis of a week of 40 working hours. A daily period of work must not exceed 8 working hours (exceptions may be established by laws, Government resolutions and collective agreements). According to the Article 196, the pay for incomplete working time (an incomplete working day or week) shall be proportionate to the time spent at work or to the work carried out, therefore the actual pay might be smaller than official minimum monthly wage if the a person's official working time is smaller than 40 hours per week.
