[full-text, 13 pages]


This report provides information on selected data monitored by the Information System on Working Conditions (ISPP) sample survey for Slovakia 2008–11. The proportion of organisations with employee representatives and covered by collective agreements in the survey decreased during this period. The average agreed growth of wage tariffs or nominal wages fell between 2008 and 2010. Higher wage increases were agreed in 2011 but the share of organisations involved decreased significantly. Similar trends have been seen in severance pay and discharge benefit agreements above the statutory minimum levels. Compared to 2008, a slight increase in average weekly working time was recorded for 2009–11.
