In 2021 the minimum pay will increase


The government issued a regulation on the lowest pay in 2021. The minimum remuneration for work will increase by PLN 200 and the lowest hourly rate by 1.30 in relation to the previous year.

On September 15, the Council of Ministers adopted a regulation on increasing the minimum remuneration for work in 2021 to PLN 2800. The rise provides for an increase of 7.7%, i.e. PLN 200 in relation to the lowest salary in force in 2020 (PLN 2600), and the lowest pay will constitute 53.2% of the average remuneration forecasted for 2021 in the national economy.

Together with the national minimum remuneration, in 2021 the minimum hourly rate for certain civil law contracts will also increase and will amount to 18.30 PLN.

The regulation adopted is the result of a lack of consensus of the Social Dialogue Council, although the Independent Self-Governing Trade Union " Solidarność " and the Association of Entrepreneurs and Employers were in favour of raising the lowest salary during the talks.

Nowadays, the lowest remuneration is paid to about 1.7 million Poles, and it does not include the overtime and night work bonuses, jubilee awards and retirement and disability benefits.

The regulation of the Council of Ministers on the minimum pay will come into force on 1 January 2021.
