Starting from January 1, 2024, the national minimum wage in Ireland will increase from €11.30 to €12.70 per hour.
The national minimum wage represents the minimum hourly rate that, by law, must be paid to employed workers. It is crucial to note that, in accordance with regulations concerning posting of workers in the EU (Directives 67/2014 and 957/2018), employees temporarily assigned to Ireland from a member state have the right to receive at least the minimum wage stipulated by national legislation throughout the duration of the assignment.
Moreover, for specific sectors subject to local wage regulations, employees on temporary assignment may be entitled to higher hourly wages.
Before the departure of employees, it is therefore essential to verify that the remuneration provided complies with local provisions to avoid the risk of incurring sanctions.
