Germany – Recommended Wage Increase

The minimum wage in Germany will increase from €8.50 to €8.84 per hour, starting January 1, 2017, pending a government approval. The Minimum Wage Commission reviews the wage threshold every two years, increased this from 2014 wages.

The minimum wage affects work permits, work permit extensions, and residence permits. Employers sending foreign nationals to Germany to work should account for the potential wage increase to remain in compliance if the assignee is based on the current minimum wage.
