[Poland] Minimum wage: government proposal for 2025

On 1 July 2024, there will be the second increase in the minimum wage this year. We have also already learned about the government’s plans regarding the minimum remuneration in 2025.

The government adopted the proposal regarding the minimum wage

The Minister of Family, Labor and Social Policy (MRPiPS) presented a proposal to increase:

  • minimum wage up to PLN 4,626 gross from 1 January 2025
  • minimum hourly rate for civil law contracts up to PLN 30.20 gross per hour

The minimum wage will increase by PLN 326 compared to the amount that will apply from 1 July  2024.

The government has given a positive opinion on the proposal of the Ministry of Family and will submit it to the Social Dialogue Council (RDS) by 15 June 2024.

Minimum wage in 2025 – further decisions

The Social Dialogue Council must present its own proposal for the minimum wage by 15 July. If it fails to do so, the government will have the final say on the matter and it will set the minimum wage by 15 September. However, please remember that the minimum pay cannot be lower than the originally proposed amount (PLN 4,626 gross).

To sum up:

  • by 15 July: the Social Dialogue Council negotiates and presents its proposal;
  • until 15 September: if there is no position reached by the RDS, the government sets the minimum wage on its own;
  • after 15 September: the final minimum wage for 2025 is announced.

It is estimated that over 3.1 million people will benefit from next year’s increase.

Minimum wage increase from 1 July 2024

From July 2024 the minimum wage will increase to PLN 4,300 gross. This is PLN 700 more than in 2023. It is also the highest increase in the minimum remuneration in 20 years.

Minimum wage in 2024:

  • from 1 January 2024 – PLN 4,242 gross
  • from 1 July 2024 – PLN 4,300 gross

Minimum hourly rate in 2024:
