Compensation of employees
Compensation of employees is the total remuneration paid by employers to
their employees in return for work done. Employees are all residents and
non-residents working in a paid job. Managing directors of limited
companies are considered to be employees; therefore their salaries are
also included in the compensation of employees. The same holds for people
working in sheltered workshops.
Compensation of employees is classified in wages and salaries and
employers' social contributions.
