Employer Tax Costs in Romania

The breakdown of taxes for employers in Romania is as follows:

Employee Income Taxes in Romania

Employees in Romania are taxed 10% regardless of their income bracket. Employees are also taxed 25% for social security (pension) contributions and 10% which goes to a health fund.

Employee Probation in Romania

In Romania, the probation period is 90 calendar days for standard positions and 120 calendar days for management positions.

Employee Overtime in Romania

Employees in Romania work eight hours a day, five days a week, totalling a maximum of 40 hours per week. Employees must have two consecutive days of rest—usually Saturday and Sunday. The maximum legal length of working time may not exceed 48 hours per week, including overtime. Overtime can be compensated by giving the employee paid time off equal to the overtime they’ve worked, which must be taken within 60 days of earning the overtime. Employers may instead pay an overtime premium of at least 75% of an employee’s base salary for the overtime hours worked.

Employee Notice in Romania

In the absence of misconduct, the notice period for employers and employees must be no less than 20 days for standard positions and 45 days for management positions.

If an employee resigns, their employer has the right to waive the notice period and terminate the contract at any time before the end of the notice period.

Termination in Romania

Severance pay is not mandated by Romania’s labour law.
