 The average gross monthly salary is the share of salary resources (including overtime allowances, bonuses, wage compensation, etc.) per employee per month. Therefore, it does not indicate the salary of one specific employee. The results of structural earnings statistics, when data on the earnings of individual employees are available, indicate that roughly two-thirds of employees have a salary lower than the national average.
It should not be forgotten that the relevant amounts for health insurance, social security and income tax advances are deducted by the employer for the employee from the gross salary, the employee is paid a net salary.
Territorial classification is carried out according to the location of the employees’ actual workplace, the so-called “workplace method”.
