Minimum wages in Norway from July 1.07.2021, XNUMX


As a respite from the coronavirus, I encourage you to read the minimum rates. The employer should automatically change your hourly rate from July 1.07.2021, XNUMX if you were to earn less than the minimum wage. The minimum rate applies to employees with an hourly rate of employment and permanent contracts. The rate does not apply to sole proprietorships.

The employer is obliged to adapt to the new minimum wages. If the employee currently earns above the minimum wage provided for in the regulations, the employer does not have to do anything. However, if he earns less, the rate should be increased. The employee's consent is not required for the increase. Failure to increase the rate may result in subsequent additional payments along with interest and possible compensation for the employee. The employee has the right to demand the minimum wage or more. An employee may report non-compliant rates anonymously to the Ministry of Labor.

Minimum rates are divided into industries. The rates entered are per gross hour of work. The employer is obliged to additionally pay employer taxes (arbeidsgiveravgift) and set aside money for the holidays (typically 10,2% minimum). Overtime is work hours above the statutory working time. Typically it is over 9 hours in 24 hours and 40 hours in 7 days. The details may vary, and the employer may have special arrangements with unions, shift work, etc. that may affect the definition of overtime. Details can be found in the Labor Code:
