The time limitations for short-term employment have been extended due to Corona. Transitionally, from 01.06.2021 to 31.10.2021, the possible duration for short-term employment was increased from 3 to 4 months or from 70 to 102 working days.
Minijob - Transitional Regulations
For the period between June 2021 and October 2021, there is a new regulation allowing mini-jobbers to earn more than 450 Euros for a maximum of 4 months without losing their mini-job status. The occasional exceeding of the 450 Euro limitations applies in the case of unforeseeable personnel needs such as replacing a sick employee.
Family Insurance and Changes in Time and Earning Limits
The extension of the time and earning limits until the end of October 2021 are also able to be exempt in the health insurance/family insurance. The free of charge family insurance is maintained, even if short-term employment has been extended by a month or the limit in the mini-job earnings increases.
