Employers are required to pay employees a minimum wage equal to the country's minimum wage in order to cover their living expenses and family needs. The legal minimum wage, on the other hand, has not been updated in several decades and is far too low to be practical. Rather than that, it is customary to set a salary in accordance with market standards, regional economic conditions, and the current cost of living. Salary should be agreed upon or determined by the Minister of Public Services, Labor, and Employment.
After determining the appropriate wage and incorporating it into the employment contract, the employer must adhere to a consistent payment schedule, paying employees on a daily, weekly, fortnightly, or monthly basis.
