Everything changes in working hours, wages and allowances

The new law on changes in the labour sector that will be applied retroactively from November 12 provides for two categories of employees; those entitled to the marriage bonus and those who are not. For those earning the minimum wage the circular of the Labour ministry that might be officially issued tomorrow, Wednesday, clarifies that any agreement with wage terms between unions and employers does not include businesses that are not members of employers' organizations.

According to the circular:

-       employers who are not members of organizations involved in the negotiation for the national collective agreement (SEV, GSEVEE and ESEE) are not bound by the wage terms of the contract from November 12. That means they will be required to pay only the minimum wage and the 3-year mandates that have been frozen, but are not required to pay a marriage bonus which is 10% of the wage

-       employers who are members of organizations involved in the negotiation are still bound by the wage terms of the agreement (basic salary+3-year mandates+marriage bonus). This commitment, however, is valid until the end of the ESSE aftereffect in late March

As the implementation law requires the amount of the minimum wage will be set by the government through a cabinet act after consultation with the social partners and scientific institutions from April 1, 2013. 3-year mandates freeze until unemployment falls below 10%.

Especially in terms of the marriage bonus, the circular provides that:

-       employers bound by existing sectoral or business contracts providing for a marriage bonus are obliged to pay until the end of March

-       those not bound by the existing sectoral or business contracts or are not members of SEV, ESEE and GSEVEE are not required to pay the marriage allowance but as stated in the circular they may do so if they wish

The same status is also provided for those employees covered by business contracts. If the company is a member of an employers' organization that participates in the national collective agreement, it is bound by mandatory wage and non-wage conditions. If it is not a member, then the employer is bound only by non-wage conditions, i.e. working hours, maternity leave, etc.

Especially in terms of business contracts signed from October 27, 2011 to November 12, 2012, the contracting parties may sign an amended new business contract under the new status.
