Earnings

The amount of an employees income depends on the level and type of professional training, the experience and the current state of the vocational qualification.
Besides this, also actual customer demand plays an important role.
The remuneration is principally based on the Collective Agreement on Remuneration (Entgelttarifvertrag) made between the Federal Association of Private Employment Agencies (Bundesverband Zeitarbeit, BZA) and the German Trade Union Federation (Deutscher Gewerkschaftsbund, DGB).

Following the provisions of the collective agreement, these hourly rates will increase by duty-related allowances between 2 and 7.5 percent.
In case of an uninterrupted assignment to a single customer, a duty-related allowance is to be paid: 1.5% after nine calendar months, 3.0% after twelve calendar months.
