Reg, OT & Bonus example:

Overtime (OT) is calculated at one and one-half times an employee's regular rate of pay. To obtain the new overtime rate of pay due to the bonus, an employer would take the new regular rate of pay and multiply it by 1.5

 

Bonus w/ OT rate is calculated within time entry. Populate the Reg & OT hours, then add the additional Bonus transaction -

Scenario

John makes $8 per hour and works eight hours per day, Monday through Friday. He is paid weekly. He received a production bonus of $9.20 and worked a total of 46 hours during the last workweek.

Actions

  1. HR determines the bonus should be included when calculating overtime because it was paid to motivate John to produce.
  2. HR defines the time frame as a workweek.
  3. Straight-Time Compensation is $320.00
    • $8.00 per hour x 40 hours worked + $9.20 bonus = $329.20
  4. The new regular rate of pay for overtime purposes is calculated to be $8.20 per hour.
    • $329.20 / 40 hours = $8.20  
  5. The new weighted overtime rate of pay is calculated to be $12.10 per hour.  
    • New Reg $8.20 per hour x 0.5 = 4.1 / Original Reg $8.00 + 4.1 = $12.10
  6. The total earnings for John is $401.80
    • $8.00 RR x 40 ST hours = $320.00
    • $12.10 OT x 6 OT hours = $72.60
    • $9.20 Bonus x 1 hours = $9.20
