Hot work subsidy to increase

The minimum monthly subsidy for work in hot weather is to rise to 300 yuan (US$43.5), the Shanghai Human Resources and Social Security Bureau announced.

The subsidy is usually given out from June to September to employees who work outdoors or in environments where the temperature is higher than 33 degrees Celsius. It has been 200 yuan per month since 2011.

The bureau said the payment is an essential part of an employee’s salary, and it is illegal for employers to refuse to pay.

It also cannot be replaced by the cost of cold drinks, and nor should it be calculated as part of the standard minimum pay. On April 1, the minimum pay in Shanghai was raised by 60 yuan to 2,480 yuan per month.
