Minimum wage in Croatia
Minimum wage in Croatia is regulated by the Minimum Wage Act (Croatian: Zakon o minimalnoj plaći) and is defined as the lowest gross monthly wage for a full-time worker, based on a 40-hour work week. For workers who do not work full time, minimum wage is lower, in proportion to their working hours. Additional compensation for overtime work, night work, and work on Sundays and holidays is not included in the minimum wage. Minimum wage is recalculated once a year and is effective throughout the next calendar year.
As of 1 January 2021, the minimum gross monthly wage in Croatia is 4,250.00 HRK (c. €560), which is equivalent to a net amount of 3,400.00 HRK (c. €450). Among 21 EU member states that regulate minimum wage, Croatian minimum wage is fifth lowest.
