Sandwiched between Italy, Austria, Hungary, and Croatia, Slovenia (Slovene: Republika Slovenija) is an Eastern European beauty, littered with stunning mountains and lakes. Slovenia is a captivating blend of old and new. The nation is famous for its medieval charm, breathtaking vineyards, and kremšnita — deliciously addictive cream cakes!

Slovenia has solidified its status as a must-see European destination, but Ljubijana, the nation’s cosmopolitan capital, is fast-becoming a hotspot for digital nomads and remote workers. The city is buzzing with co-working spaces, single origin coffee shops, and a growing group of ambitious startups.

Risks of misclassification

Slovenia, like many other countries, treats self-employed individuals or contractors and full-time employees differently. Misclassification of contractors in Slovenia may lead to fines and penalties for the offending company.

Employing in Slovenia

Employment relationships in Slovenia are regulated by statutes spelled out across the Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia and the Employment Relationships Act (ERA-1), as well as the EU and the ILO’s labour resolutions which Slovenia is a signatory to.

Employees in Slovenia enjoy protections against discrimination based on age, religion, sexual orientation, gender expression, and race.

Common questions that could come up during the hiring process include the minimum wage, overtime rates, and guaranteed paid time off. Remote can help you offer a complete, competitive, and compliant benefits package to your employees in Slovenia.

Minimum Wage

The Slovenian minimum wage is fixed at €1024.24 ($1198.04) per month.

Onboarding Time

We can help you get a new employee started in Romania fast. The minimum onboarding time we need is only 15 working days.

Our team ensures your employees are onboarded and paid as quickly as possible while keeping your business compliant with all local employment legislation. The minimum onboarding time begins after the employee submits all required information onto the Remote platform. The onboarding timeline is also dependent upon registration with local authorities.

For all non-nationals of the country of employment, the Right to Work assessment (if applicable) will add three extra days to the total time to onboard. There may be extra time required if we need to follow-up on the right to work assessment.

Please note, payroll cut-off dates can impact the actual first day of employment. Remote has a payroll cut-off date of the 10th of the month unless otherwise specified.
