In the conditions of the Slovak Republic, there is no legislative concept of “remuneration”, the transposition of the directive in this case was carried out by explicitly listing those components of wages that are mandatory from the Labor Code. In the case of special regulations and a possible generally applicable collective agreement, the term “other mandatory components of wages” has been retained, as the Labor Code cannot predict which mandatory components of wages will be agreed in the relevant generally applicable collective agreement.

For the purposes of remuneration, the following are considered to be the compulsory wage component:

  • minimum wage,
  • minimum wage claims,
  • wage benefit for overtime work,
  • wage benefit for work during public holidays,
  • wage benefit for work on Saturdays,
  • wage benefit for work on Sundays,
  • wage benefit for night work,
  • wage compensation for difficult work performance,
  • other mandatory wage components
  • holiday pay compensation

Section 118 of the Act No. 311/2001 Coll. Labour Code shall be applied in assessing whether the benefit provided by the visiting employer is a wage.
