Some clarifications on new increases in minimum wages for employees in Kenya.
Regarding the official tables that our portal has made available and certainly not easy to read (apart from the language, there are no well-defined roles and membership bands, although we have added a kind of "legend" in the two previous articles) Make notes.
First of all, the minimum wage of a regularly contracted employee will have to add 15% of house allowance, plus the payment of health and social security contributions. Only with the house allowance, for example, the minimum wage of a home contractor becomes a Kshs. 13,716. To whom, according to the duration of the contract, additional expenses (such as traveling allowance during holidays) will be added.
The second clarification is that the statement signed by the Minister of Labor of Kenya is dated 1 May 2017, but the increase and the new wages will be effective as of when they will officially be issued.
In any case, for contracts starting today, it is best to adjust to avoid any misunderstanding and prepare for the new provisions that will most likely become effective in the coming months.
In any case, before reading the document and making quick conclusions (let's say because of the many mails and phone calls that are coming to us) you should ask a lawyer or your administrator to read our articles well, and avoid relying on Talk from social networks.
Finally, we repeat again for the category in which Malindi, Watamu and Mambrui belong to the "FORMER MUNICIPALITIES" and that the first table concerns only the employees of the agricultural sector.
