Service Description

The minimum wage is currently EUR 8.84. It is adjusted every 2 years, the next time on 1 January 2019.

Exemptions from the minimum wage requirement, some of which were permitted until 31 December 2017, have no longer been permitted since 1 January 2018.


The minimum wage is a gross wage. Payments made by an employer that compensate an employee for "normal work" are considered a component of the minimum wage.

Payments that an employee receives as compensation for additional benefits, expense allowances and fringe benefits are not included. For example, capital-forming benefits are not remuneration and therefore cannot be offset against the minimum wage.
