Requirements for employment in Croatia

Here are a few of the legal and tax requirements that employers must adhere to when hiring employees in Croatia:

Employment contract

According to Croatian law, employment contracts must be in writing. The contract should include the start date, type of work, working hours, annual leave, duration, salary, and notice period.

Minimum wage requirements

All employees in Croatia must receive at least the minimum wage. Exceptions to this rule are management board members and executive directors.

Social security contributions

Employers are responsible for deducting a certain amount from their employees’ salaries to pay for social security contributions. In Croatia, employees are entitled to health, pension, unemployment, maternity, work accident, and family benefits.

Paying taxes

Employers must pay income taxes or any other type of tax on behalf of their employees.

Work permits

Foreign workers from the EU, Switzerland and EEA and their family members don’t have to get an employment permit or a residence permit to work in Croatia. However, for workers outside of these countries, a work permit or work registration certificate is required.

Obtaining a tax number

Employers and employees must obtain a tax number or OIB (‘osobni identifikacijski broj’), which is necessary for registering for health insurance, opening a local bank account, and paying taxes.

Compliance with labour laws

Employers must follow Croatian labour laws, which include overtime, working hours, leave entitlements and termination procedures.

Please note that Croatian laws and regulations can change. So, it’s important to keep abreast of the latest developments regarding labour law.

Please note that all these requirements may vary depending on the job type, the employer and individual circumstances.
