Minimum wage

Service Description

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

Exemptions from the minimum wage obligation, which were partially permitted until December 31, 2017, are no longer permitted as of January 1, 2018.


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

Payments received by an employee 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.
