Employers face special challenges when calculating overtime for non-exempt employees, whether paid on an hourly, piece work, or salaried basis. Payroll professionals must take into consideration commissions, bonuses and other special wage payments, piece rates, shift differentials, multiple pay rates and actual hours worked during a workweek when making their calculations.

Session Highlights:

  • Avoiding the pitfalls of artificial wage rates 
  • When bonus payments must be included in the regular rate of pay 
  • Computing the regular rate of pay for non-exempt salaried employees 
  • Allocating retroactive pay increases to affected pay periods 
  • Computing overtime rates when an employee has multiple regular pay rates 
  • Salary rates that include overtime pay 
  • The special challenge of semi-monthly pay periods 
  •  Computing the overtime rate for piece-rate workers
Why You Should Attend:

Calculating overtime is not necessarily as simple as taking an employee’s hourly rate and multiplying by 1.5. Issues include determination of which employees are eligible for overtime, calculation of the regular rate of pay for overtime-eligible salaried employees, properly taking into account bonus, incentive, and shift-differential payments. There is a lot more to overtime calculation than initially meets the eye. Mistakes, even honest ones, can be costly. State and federal labor departments regularly issue fines and back pay awards where employers have failed to properly compensate employees for overtime. It is important that payroll professionals know and properly apply the overtime rules.
