Labour System 


2.2. Defining the salary's amount


When defining the salary’s amount, the quantity, nature and quality of work should be taken into account, observing the principle that, for equivalent work or work of equal value, there shall be equal pay.


Hourly wage is calculated according to the following formula:


“MS” × 12

52 × “n”


where “MS” is the monthly salary, and “n” is the normal weekly work period.
