Quý Nguyễn

THƯ VIỆN PHÁP LUẬT would like to introduce to you pay policies in effect from January 1, 2020, including:

1. Region-specific minimum pay rates in effect from January 1, 2020

From January 1, 2020, the Decree No. 90/2019/ND-CP regulating region-specific minimum pay rates applied to corporate employees under employment contracts as follows:

- The rate of VND 4,420,000/month, applied to enterprises operating within the Region I.

- The rate of VND 3,920,000/month, applied to enterprises operating within the Region II.

- The rate of VND 3,430,000/month, applied to enterprises operating within the Region III.

- The rate of VND 3,070,000/month, applied to enterprises operating within the Region IV.

Notes:  Minimum pay rates for employees holding the posts subject to vocational training and education requirements must be at least 7% greater than the region-specific minimum pay rates.
 

Mr. Bui Tuong Vu, Legal Advocate and Director of THƯ VIỆN PHÁP LUẬT Co., emphasized:  “Region-specific minimum pay rates increased by 150,000 – 240,000 dong/month will help the average employee income hike up, making sure that they can pay basic living expenses according to the schedule specified in the Resolution No. 27-NQ/TW dated May 21, 2018 of the Party Central Committee on reform of wage and salary policies.    However, this also affects costs that enterprises have to pay. Nevertheless, since many enterprises pay more than the region-specific minimum pay rates of 2019, the aforesaid increases in minimum pay rates of 2020 will mainly affect Social Insurance contribution costs”.
