German to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s) / Labour law, employment contracts
German term or phrase:Anrechnung der übertariflichen Zulage
Basically, it means something like this: An employee earns, say, EUR 10 as his basic salary (just to make the figures easy) and gets an extra allowance (agreed in his contract) of EUR 2, so he ends up earning EUR 12. If his basic salary is increased on the basis of a collective bargaining agreement by, say, 10%, his basic salary would then be EUR 11. The extra allowance is "angerechnet", so he still ends up with EUR 12 (in this case the extra allowance is reduced to EUR 1), it's just made up differently, i.e. more basic salary and less extra allowance.
Anyone know how to say that properly in English?!
Sorry, no surrounding text, this is the section heading in the contract. The section itself basically just says what is described in the link I've added
Explanation: I think a different word to "calculation" is needed to get over the notion of "anrechnung" ... this is just a stab. Whether this works as a heading depends on the actual text of the contractual clause which follows. Would a worker or employer - having read the heading and the clause - understand what is going on here?
