It was published today in the official gazette the Decree-Law no. 117/2018, of December 27, ruling the increase of the minimum monthly wage to € 600,00, with effects from January 1, 2019, onwards.
The minimum monthly wage determined by law prevails over any inferior wage established in employment contract or in Collective Bargaining Agreement. Therefore, from January 1, onwards, any employee that is currently receiving a wage inferior to € 600,00 will be entitled to have the wage updated, at least, to that amount.
In case of part-time employees, the minimum monthly wage is calculated proportionally.
