Good to know: Workers Rights in Israel
I have to add that the minimum wage has risen to 4800 Shekels. However, you should be very careful: The monthly minimum wage of 4800 Shekels only applies to employees working eight hours a day. Some companies have already started to let their staff only work for seven hours. This way, they get around the minimum wage law. Example: The Jerusalem Post.
So, if you work full – time but only seven hours per day, you can earn less than 4800 Shekels. And this is even legal.
Before signing a contract, read it carefully. In many cases, companies want to charge a fine in case you leave before the first six months.
