  • for each full-time employee, the minimum monthly taxable base for the calculation of social security contributions cannot be lower than the nationwide minimum monthly salary determined as under the law based on the actual hours worked.
  • for each part-time or reduced-work schedule employee, the social security contribution calculated by reference to the monthly taxable base cannot be lower than 25% of the social security contribution determined by reference to the nationwide minimum monthly salary.
