The service brings to the attention of employers that until January 1, 2022, the employment contracts stipulatingsalaries lower than the minimum salary must be amended in accordance with the requirements of the legislation and the relevant employment contract notification must be included in the “EmploymentContract Notification” subsystem. The minimum salary in workplaces cannot be less than 300 manats from January 1.

The situation in this field is constantly monitored through the Ministry’s “Employment Contract Notification” subsystem. All information about concluded employment contracts, as well as changes or termination of contracts, is covered in that subsystem.

In connection with the increase of the minimum salary, employers must make appropriate increases in the salaries of employees who are paid according to the Unified Tariff Schedule consisting of 19 levels, and appropriate measures must be taken in this regard.
