THE GOVERNMENT has passed an amendment to the Minimum Wage Law which decreases the gross working week from 42.5 hours to 40 hours.
It was also suggested that the minimum wage should be increased from Sk26.60 per hour to Sk28.30.
The amendment still needs parliament's approval but it is expected to take into effect as of April this year hand-in-hand with the new Labour Code.
