Summer job in Luxembourg, who and how much?

 In Employment, Money Taxation

Are you between 15 and 27, studying in Luxembourg or even abroad? Then you have the opportunity to apply for a summer job in Luxembourg for a maximum of 2 months.

Whatever the position, you must sign a specific employment contract with your employer for the duration of the assignment. Even if you are entitled to the same working conditions as other employees of the company, you should know that a student job is not entitled to paid leave or sick leave. If you wish to not attend work exceptionally, you must of course get the approval of your employer, but you will not be paid during this absence.

The minimum remuneration is linked to your age and cannot be less than 80% of the unqualified minimum wage in Luxembourg.

  • Are you 15 to 17 years old? Since January, 1st, 2019 you earn  minimum 8,9788 euros per hour or 1.553,33 euros per month for a full-time job (40 hours per week).
  • Are you between 17 and 18 years old? The hourly rate is 9,5773 euros per hour or 1.656,88 euros per month.
  • From the age of 18, you will receive 11,9717 euros per hour and 2.071,10 euros per month on the basis of full-time unqualified work (40 hours per week).

It should also be known that student jobs are exempt from contributions related to different health insurance, pension or nursing insurance. On the other hand, your employer must declare you to the Joint Social Security Center.

Another good news for you, you are exempt from paying tax until you earn up to 14 euros per hour!

So here we go to find a summer job!
