The CBA regulates the method of calculation of an employee's base salary and prescribes higher percentages for mandatory increases thereof – e.g. for work on a public holiday, the employee is entitled to a mandatory increase of at least 120% of base salary (which is more than the 110% mandatory increase otherwise applicable pursuant to the Labour Law).
The CBA also determines the amounts of employee per diems for business travel in Serbia and abroad, as well as the amount of the meal allowance.
In addition, the CBA prescribes criteria for determining the minimum number of an employee's annual vacation days and also introduces additional cases in which an employee is entitled to paid leave, in addition to those prescribed by the Labour Law.
Safety and health at work are also regulated in more detail by the CBA.
Affected employers must harmonize their existing internal rulebooks and employment contracts with the provisions of the CBA by 22 November 2015.
