With Coople, the costs for the hiring of a Coopler are visible for the companies before each employment. The hourly wage of a Coopler is determined by the company.
The costs for a Coopler are calculated based on the respective hourly wage of the Coopler. Only the time actually worked by the Coopler worker must be paid. The effective costs per hour for a company can be calculated as followed:
The factor includes, among other things, any social security contributions for the employees, the accounting and administrative costs as well as the provision of the platform and the employees. You can find more information on this in our general terms and conditions.
In principle, the hourly wage can be set at any level, provided that the respective minimum wage is complied with. The determining factor for the hourly wage is generally the selected job profile. Depending on the industry and level of experience, a different minimum wage applies according to the generally binding Collective Employment Contracts (CEC). It is always up to the company to decide whether only "unskilled" or "skilled" Coopers should be employed for a job assignment.
When creating a new job assignment always two types of costs are displayed. On the one hand, the gross hourly wage that is paid to the Coopler and, on the other hand, the costs per hour that are invoiced to the company. Before you hire a Coopler for an assignment, you can see how much this person will cost you for the entire assignment. This is based on the planned time period. The total costs may therefore vary depending on the hours actually worked by the Coopler.
Companies are only liable to pay the costs of a Coopler when they have actually employed a Coopler and he has actually showed up for the job. If no suitable Coopler was found for a job assignment or the assignment is correctly cancelled in advance after a Coopler has been employed, no costs are invoiced to the company.
