Average earnings for April 2020 higher than earnings for March 2020
Average gross earnings for April 2020 amounted to EUR 1,937.21. Compared to gross earnings for March 2020 they were higher in nominal terms by 10.2% and in real terms by 11.2%. Average net earnings for April 2020 amounted to EUR 1,266.13 and were higher than net earnings for March 2020, in nominal terms by 10.5% and in real terms by 11.5%.

The increase in average earnings was largely the result of measures related to the COVID-19 epidemic (particularly emergency relief compensation in some activities in line with the Intervention Measures Act and/or collective agreements in the whole month of April 2020). In April 2020 also most of the persons in paid employment who were temporarily laid-off were laid-off the whole month (in March 2020 only in the second half of the month), which resulted in the drop of the number of persons in paid employment who received earnings or non-refunded wage compensation from the employer’s resources and in the increase in average gross and net earnings (compared to earnings for March 2020).
