Thursday, the 20th of July, the Romanian Government adopted a decision through which is the employers will have to pay the CAS and CASS contributions at the level of the minimum wage even for the part-time contracts.
Therefore, under this decision, employers will be required to pay social and health contributions at the level of the minimum wage even in the case of part-time contracts.
The measure is taken even if the salary of the part-time employee, related to the number of hours worked, is lower than the country-guaranteed minimum gross salary. Thus, for example, if the part-time employee earns 600 lei gross, the employer will be obliged to pay the pension and health contribution at the level of the minimum salary of 1450 lei gross.READ MORE
