The Ministry of Labour, Family and Social Affairs submitted the draft government resolution increasing the minimum wage from €317 to €327.20 effective January 2012.By law, if the social partners in tripartite negotiations do not reach agreement on the level of the minimum wage, the ministry is required to submit a proposal to increase it by the same percentage as the average wage growth two years previously.

The minimum wage was increased by 3 percent to €317 at the beginning of 2011, reflecting the growth in the average wage in Slovakia in 2009.
