It is always recommended to conclude your employment contract in writing. That way the terms are reliably verifiable at a later stage if necessary. There is no minimum wage in Finland, but all employers are bound by the applicable collective bargaining agreements. E.g. most jobs in the tourist industry fall under the collective agreements governing the hotel, restaurant and leisure industry. Please make sure that you always receive your payslip and check that your compensation has been calculated correctly.
