Business Culture

Business Culture in Slovakia

Business culture in Slovakia is formal and conservative. Punctuality is very important, and meetings should be scheduled well in advance. The decision-making process can be slow, as Slovaks prefer to thoroughly examine all aspects before making a decision. Business cards are exchanged at the first meeting, and it is customary to use titles when addressing business partners.

Slovakia Pensions

Slovakia has a mandatory pension system, which consists of a pay-as-you-go system and a funded system. The contribution rates, as a percentage of an employee’s gross salary, are as follows:

  • Employees: 7%
  • Employers: 21.75% which is included in the social security contributions

Healthcare in Slovakia

Slovakia has a universal healthcare system, which provides a wide range of healthcare services, including preventative care, inpatient and outpatient services, emergency care, maternity care, and prescription medications. Healthcare is funded through social health insurance contributions made by employers and employees.

The system’s funding structure, which combines social health insurance contributions, government subsidies, and general tax revenues, helps maintain its stability and sustainability.

Employment Law

Employment Law in Slovakia

Relevant Legislation: Slovak employment law is governed by the Labor Code, which provides protections and rights for employees.

Employment Contracts: Slovakian employment contracts should be in writing and include essential information such as duration of employment, working hours, salary, and termination notice periods.

Working Hours: The standard maximum working time in Slovakia is 40 hours per week. Overtime work is allowed up to 150 hours per year, with additional compensation.

Leave: Employees in Slovakia are entitled to a minimum of 20 days of paid annual leave. Additional leave is provided for employees working in hazardous conditions, and employees with at least one child are entitled to a minimum of 25 days of paid annual leave.

Overtime: Overtime work is compensated at a premium rate, which is at least 25% of the employee’s average earnings.

Termination: Termination of employment contracts in Slovakia must be in writing and can occur for several reasons, such as mutual agreement, expiry of a fixed-term contract, and dismissal for cause.

Notice: Both employers and employees are required to give notice before terminating an employment contract. The notice period varies depending on the length of employment, ranging from one month for less than one year of service to three months for more than five years of service.

Severance Pay: In Slovakia, employees may be entitled to severance pay in the event of redundancy, depending on their length of service. The amount of severance pay can range from one to five times the employee’s average monthly earnings.


Work Permits in Slovakia

The immigration process in Slovakia is regulated by the Bureau of Border and Alien Police. Foreign nationals from non-EU/EEA countries who wish to work in Slovakia generally need to obtain a work permit and a residence permit.

There are several types of work permits in Slovakia, including:

  • General Employment Permit: This is the most common type of work permit. It is issued for a specific job with a specific employer for a maximum duration of two years.
  • Intra-Corporate Transfer Permit: This permit is for foreign nationals who are transferred to Slovakia by their employer to work in a branch or subsidiary of the same company.
  • Blue Card: This is a special work and residence permit for highly skilled non-EU/EEA nationals.

EU/EEA citizens do not need a work permit to work in Slovakia. However, if they plan to stay in Slovakia for more than 90 days, they must register with the local Foreign Police Department.
