Förderprogramm "Integration durch Qulifizierung IQ"

Do you need information about your rights at work in Germany?

How much will I earn?


There is a statutory minimum wage in temporary work below which the amount you earn must not fall. Since 1/4/2021 the minimum wage is €10.45 per hour. If you are hired to work in an industry in which a generally binding industry minimum wage applies, this must be paid.

It is important that you are correctly classified. In the collective agreements, specific activities are allocated to specific wage brackets. You must receive a higher wage for specific activities. It is important that you are classified in the correct wage bracket immediately. Changing aspects of the classification at a later point is much harder.

Important: It may happen that your employer classifies you in a lower wage bracket than is actually correct. Find out from your union or from a Fair Integration advice centre whether you have been classified in the correct wage bracket.
