Salaries are paid on a monthly basis. You will receive your salary paid into your bank or Giro account no later than the last working day of the month. The regular payment date is around the 24th of the month.
Your pay slip will show how your salary was calculated, the amount of your gross income, extra payments (such as vacation pay and year-end bonus), plus any corrections.
If you have a fixed-hours contract, the amount accrued will be paid in the month of May or in the month following termination of your
employment contract. Vacation pay comes to 8% of your annual salary and is accrued (between June 1st and June 1st) over the period that you have been employed.
If you have a fixed-hours contract, you will also receive a year-
end bonus in the amount of 8.3% of your annual salary. You accrue this amount (from January 1st through December 31st) for the period that you have been employed. Payment of the amount accrued takes place in the month of December or in the month following termination of your employment contract.
