Temporary employment rates
Temporary workers must always be paid in the same manner as the employees in the customer’s business how perform the same tasks (principle of equality). These regulations are not taken into account when applying relevant collective agreements to the employment relationship with temporary workers for the first nine months of a transfer.
iGZ has negotiated such a collective agreement with the member unions of the DGB. Since 1/11/2012, this has been supplemented by so-called industry supplement collective agreements for the following sectors: metal and electrical industry, chemical industry, plastics processing industry, rubber industry, textiles and clothing industry, timber and plastics processing industry, paper, cardboard and plastics processing industry, printing industry, potassium and rock salt mining, paper manufacturing industry, rail transport sector.
From 1 October 2019, the lowest standard wage in the temporary employment industry is 9.66 Euros / gross in the new German states and 9.96 Euros / gross in the old German states.
