This week, the Council of Ministers approved the draft texts for the salary restraint rules for 2021 and 2022.

As expected, there will be a maximum average increase in salary costs of 0.4% in addition to indexations and barometric increases. 

The salary margin determines the maximum increase in the average salary cost per employee for two years. The maximum evolution of the wage costs amounts to 0.4% for the years 2021 and 2022. Indexations and scale increases remain guaranteed.
