The new salary was adopted by the administrative body of the Judiciary, during the session of December 15, 2020.

The base salary serves as a parameter during the year, to calculate the various monetary penalties established in the Criminal Code, in the Law of Public Registry Tariffs, tax on legal entities (corporations), tax on real estate, the Labor Code and family support, among others.
