Change in Minimum Wage Rates for 2022!

Remember that if you are issuing contracts to new permanent staff, the minimum wage will increase to €10.50/hr from January 1st, 2022.

It is also a good time to review existing staff on your payroll, to ensure you are ready to adjust their pay rates after the holiday period.

The national minimum hourly rate will become €10.50 on 1 January 2022.

Category of Employee Hourly Rate
Aged 20 and over €10.50
Under 18 €7.35
Aged 18 €8.40
Aged 19 €9.45

The employer PRSI threshold has been increased to €410 to avoid any additional cost to the employer, beyond the hourly increase.

We will be providing a special workshop on ‘Task-Based Rostering’ in the new year, teaching employers a task-orientated strategy to cutting payroll costs.
