The Official State Gazette (BOE) has published Royal Decree 1462/2018 of 21 December approving the increase in the Minimum Interprofessional Salary (MIS), setting it at 900 euros per month. A measure that will enter into force in 2019 and represents an increase of 22.3% over the current amounts.
Thus, the minimum wage for any activities in agriculture, industry and services, without distinction of sex or age of workers, is set at:
For temporary and seasonal workers, the minimum wage will be €42.62 per day and that for domestic workers will be increased to €7.04 per hour.
Rise of the MIS for 2019. Which workers are affected by the measure?
All workers can benefit from this increase, as it does not only affect an increase in salary for those who receive their salary fixed to the SMI.
This increase in the minimum interprofessional salary also has effects on some contingencies such as, for example, in the module for calculating the salary and compensation limits paid by FOGASA or the protection of the salary in the event of insolvency proceedings.
Although collective agreements that use the minimum interprofessional salary as a reference to determine the increase in the basic salary or any of its salary complements, on this occasion they will not be taken into account as a reference to determine the percentage or amount of the salary increase established in the applicable collective agreements in each sector or company (as established in RD 28/2018).
