Every fifth employee in Germany works in a mini-job.

So far, you could earn 450 euros a month.

But now new rules apply.

According to the

Lohnsteuerhilfe Bayern e.

V

(short Lohi)

around seven million mini-jobbers in Germany.

Mini-jobbers are those who have not earned more than 450 euros per month to date.

The jobs are usually tax and social security-free for employees.

Most of them work in retail or gastronomy.

But that's over since October 1st.

New rules now apply, which, however, benefit mini-jobbers.

New mini-job limit and higher minimum wage from October 2022

Finally, the minimum wage has been increased to twelve euros an hour.

With the result that employees who have a mini-job can now earn 520 euros a month.

knows that there will also be new legal bases for short-term exceptions

.

As a result of the new regulation, mini-jobbers can generally work an average of ten hours per week.

For comparison: In the past, it was a disadvantage for employees who earn extra income when the minimum wage was increased.

Ultimately, this meant that they had to reduce the number of hours they worked per week, otherwise they would earn more than the 450 euros a month.

Another simplification is that the maximum monthly work can now also be specified in the contract without mini-jobbers having to fear regular contract changes.

Mini job: 520 euros from October – if there is a shortage of staff, there are more

It is also interesting for side earners to know that up to this upper limit of work, there is not only no obligation to pay social security, but regardless of how the minimum wage will develop in the future.

However, anyone who earns more than the minimum wage must not forget to reduce the number of hours, explains the

Bavarian wage tax aid

.

However, there are also exceptions: According to the new regulation, mini-jobbers can earn more than 520 euros in up to two calendar months a year.

Only if there is a major shortage of staff in the company can you earn twice as much, i.e. up to 1,040 euros, during this period.

This increases the annual earnings limit from 6,240 euros in justified cases to 7,280 euros without having to expect any losses.

Ultimately, this is worthwhile for mini-jobbers in private households as well as their commercial colleagues.
