Spain: Minimum Wage Increases 2024

Key Points  

  • Spain increased the country’s national minimum wage and introduced new rules for employers to record conditions of work and employment  


The government of Spain will increase the national minimum wage (SMI) for 2024 to EUR 1,134. In addition, the government underlined that the regulation prohibits on-call work and zero-hour contracts so that workers will not have to be permanently available to employers. 

The rule requires the company to strictly record all the conditions of the employment relationship in writing, such as the duration of the contract, the type of working day and the distribution of hours, the records, the salary and the length of the probationary period.
