Quick Reference

Is a form of employment found in Germany and created by the Hartz Commission as part of its drive to increase the flexibility of the German labour market. Mini-jobs are short-hours, low-paid jobs that are exempt from income tax and social insurance payments provided earnings stay below a certain level. A large proportion of low-skilled, service-sector employment in Germany now takes this form. Many mini-jobs are held by students or others for whom paid employment is a secondary activity. [See component wage job.]
