Employer Responsibilities

In Austria, the following must be adhered to under strict local legislation:

  • 30 Days’ vacation
  • No Minimum Wage
  • Collective Bargaining Agreements govern aspects of the employment
How does payroll work in Austria?

In Austria, it is common for individuals to receive a 13th and 14th month payment. This is not an additional expense to the employer as the annual salary is divided into 14 equal segments. Employees receive one instalment each month with an additional segment in June and December.

What are the general employment rules?

A typical working week in Austria is 40 hours. Employees who work more than 40 hours per week or 8 hours per day must be paid overtime, which cannot exceed a total of 50 hours per week or 10 hours per day.

Maternity Leave in Austria is 16 weeks, which can start from 8 weeks prior to the due date. Maternity leave is based on the earnings of the 3 months prior to the leave date and is paid by Austrian Social Security.

What about dismissing an employee?

Employment rights are strict in Austria and a process must be followed. Before taking any action, we recommend speaking to one of our local Employment Law Advisors. An employee is entitled to claim with the local Labor Courts if they deem the terms of their departure to be without warrant.
