Minimum interprofessional salary

Approval of the minimum wage set at 1,080 euros per month, with effect from January 1, 2023.

The BOE publishes Royal Decree 99/2023, of February 14, which sets the minimum interprofessional wage for 2023.

In this way, the minimum wage that a worker in any activity in agriculture, industry and services must receive, regardless of gender or age, will be 1,080 euros per month.

The Royal Decree also establishes that casual and seasonal workers, whose services to the same company do not exceed 120 days, will receive, together with the minimum wage, the proportional part of the remuneration for Sundays and holidays and the two extraordinary bonuses, without that the amount of salary may be less than €51.15 per legal day in the activity.

In this way, the increase in the minimum wage will not affect the structure or the amount of the professional salaries that the workers have been receiving, when such salaries as a whole and annual calculation are higher than said minimum wage.

In its annual calculation, the minimum wage may not be considered an annual amount of less than €15,120.

The new regulations will enter into force tomorrow, Thursday, February 16, 2023, and will take effect during the period between January 1 and December 31, 2023.

Consequently, the payment of the minimum wage will be effective from January 1, 2023.
