Wages and working conditions

In Norway, what you are entitled to depends on which industry you work in. There is no national minimum wage, but in some industries (construction, industry, agriculture and hotel, restaurant and catering) It is mandatory to pay workers in these sectors according to the statutory minimum wage regulations (allmenngjøring).

The regulations on the general application of the collective agreements apply to both unionised and non-unionised employees, whether they are Norwegians or foreigners, and irrespective of where in the country they are working.
