As of 1 January 2017, employers domiciled outside Germany are required to register workers posted to Germany online, using the minimum wage registration website. The same applies to businesses that use workers leased from an agency domiciled outside Germany.
The new online registration system means less work for businesses that are required to register workers.
No fax messages possible after July 2017
Notifications may still be submitted by fax to the usual fax number during a transitional period until 30 June 2017. After this date, registration by fax will no longer be possible.
You can find more information about the minimum wage registration website under the section “Questions and answers” on the website itself: www.meldeportal-mindestlohn.de
