Employment

According to the new laws, Adults, specifically those aged over 23, will have to earn a gross monthly wage income of €1.456.20. Per week, this translates into a rate of €336.05 while per day salaries are not allowed to drop below €67.21 for a full-time worker.

But hourly pay rates are not fixed by law in the Netherlands. If an employee works 40 hours a week, this results in a minimum hourly pay rate of €8.40, compared to somebody working 36 hours a week who would then receive a gross hourly rate of €9.33.

Differences remain in place for young people aged under 23 and part-timers.

Those aged 22 are entitled to receive 85% of the minimum pay (a daily rate of €57.13) while those aged 15 will have to receive at least 30% (a daily rate of €20.16).

The Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment also corrected a mistake today regarding the adjustment of the minimum wage for 19-year-olds who are to receive at least €176.45 per week and €35.29 per day. The minimum wage in the Netherlands is adjusted twice a year on 1 January and 1 July.
