There are eight different paygrade levels of guaranteed minimum wage according to an individual’s qualification, responsibilities, and strenuousness. As of 2023, the minimum gross salary ranges from CZK 17,300 monthly (for unqualified work) to CZK 34,600 (for managerial or scientific roles). Salaries are always rounded to whole crowns.
The most common payment frequency is monthly, although biweekly and weekly are also allowed.
Salaries are paid in the month following the performance of work, usually by the 15th of the following month, but it is up to the company to decide on a date (no later than by the end of the month following the month for which the employee became entitled to the remuneration).
