Q: The salary of a recruited researcher is based on a national rule of the host organisation that is setting an amount of allowances different from the one established in the Grant Agreement and its Annexes. Are any adjustments allowed? (All Calls)
A: Underpayments are not allowed; any recruited researcher must receive, before tax and social security deductions, at least the amount of allowances defined as per the Grant Agreement and its Annexes. If the researcher has been underpaid a corrective payment is to be done by the host organisation in order to compensate the previous payments. If the event of a researcher receiving an amount greater than the Marie Curie rates, the host institution will have to support the extra costs with its own budget: the allowances reimbursed by the EU will not exceed those defined in the Grant Agreement and its Annexes.
