Providing robust compensation and benefits in Uzbekistan will give you an edge above your competitors and also help you secure top talent.

Uzbekistan Compensation Laws
Uzbekistan has a national minimum wage of 107,635 Uzbekistan som per month for all workers. However, the average monthly wage, including remuneration, incentive payments, and more, was 2.21 million som as recent as September 2019. They last changed the minimum wage in 2014, so it could change again in a few years.
Guaranteed Benefits in Uzbekistan
Every employee in Uzbekistan must receive guaranteed benefits required by law. Your Uzbekistan benefits management plan has to include 11 days off for the country’s public holidays and 15 days of annual leave. When an employee becomes ill, suffers an injury, or cares for their sick family members, they should take sick leave. That leave is paid at 100% of the employee’s average pay if the sickness is work-related or the employee has worked for more than eight years.
Employers also need to give pregnant employees a minimum of 70 days of paid maternity leave before their due date and 56 days after giving birth. Those on maternity leave should receive their normal pay through their employer, who is reimbursed by the Social Security Fund.
Uzbekistan Benefits Management
After creating your Uzbekistan benefits management plan, you need to give all benefits to employees. It’s a good idea to also provide supplemental benefits that can encourage employees to stay in their jobs. Whether it’s performance-based bonuses, a private health care plan, or a company car, giving employees market norm benefits will show that you care.
Restrictions for Benefits and Compensation
Companies looking to expand to Uzbekistan cannot pay employees or provide benefits until they’ve a registered subsidiary. However, setting up that subsidiary takes time and can set back your entire operating schedule.
