One of the first measures the new Government enforced in early January 2017 was the minimum wage increase from 1250 lei (aprox. 277 Euro or 296 USD) to the new value of 1450 LEI (approx. 322 Euro or 344 USD).
This minimum wage applies for an average full-time schedule of 166,00 hours a month. All employers must ensure the payment of the minimum wage to their employees. Employers that do not ensure the payment of the minimum wage to their employees will be subject to financial sanctions.
