Some facts

  • Once a year, the Polish government reviews the minimum salary which must be guaranteed by the employer. This means that offering a lower rate for a job is illegal in Poland.
  • According to the Act of 10 October 2002 on Minimum Wage for Work, the minimum wage should be announced by 15 September in the Official Journal of the Republic of Poland "Monitor Polski", by announcement of the Prime Minister.
  • ⚠ WARNING! Minimum monthly salary refers to the employment contract. In the case of a job order contract, contract to perform specific task or B2B contract (as self-employed) the monthly salary may be lower.
  • Until 2017, only minimum monthly salary was regulated. Starting in 2017, a minimum hourly rate is regulated too.
  • The minimum wage and the minimum hourly rate are stated as gross values. To calculate "take-home" earnings (net), you need to deduct insurance contributions (polish: ZUS) and income tax. You can do this using our other calculator: Polish earnings #2 (tax↔no tax).

Data up-to-date
