Here is how yearly salary is calculated for Wage Earners

First of all, one needs to understand who is a wage earner. A wage earner is a worker or an employee who is paid on an hourly basis. A pay rate every hour is multiplied with the hours that the person has worked for that week or each week for a wage earner. These employees are also termed as a non-exempt employee. The paycheck obtained each week may not be same each week and vary based on the number of hours worked for. If the same number of working hours are kept every week, then the pay may remain the same every week. However, even in that case, the person is a wage earner.

Determine the salary per hour– It is necessary to know as to how much amount you are paid for each hour you work. This information can be clarified with precision from anyone in the human resources department. This can also be calculated by the paystub provided which has overall payment information. Observe the pay stub for the total gross pay. This gross pay is what is the total salary prior to deductions for benefits as well as taxes. This amount is what has to be divided by the number of working hours during that pay time period.

Calculate the yearly salary by multiplication-When a person has put in certain number of fixed hours of work that week, then the hourly salary is multiplied with that number of working hours in that week. This will give you the overall weekly salary. This income figure needs to be multiplied by 52. 52 is the number of weeks each year. Once the income is multiplied by 52, this will give us the yearly salary of that person.

When number of working hours are different each week-

Take the average of the hours that the person worked in that week, if the weekly pay out amount is different every week. When the hours worked are different each week then keeping track of number of working hours every week is essential for each month.Calculate the average hours worked each week and multiply it to determine the yearly salary. The number of hours can vary even when the person is on a leave or a vacation which is not paid. Overtime pay outs– The employer ought to pay you overtime if the working hours are over 40 per week. This is an overtime payment. Generally this overtime rate is about 1½ hours of the pay rate or regular pay. Track the overtime hours along with regular working hours for a period of 1 month/4 weeks. Determine the average of regular as well as overtime working hours each week. This will give you yearly regular along with the payment overtime. Together, these amounts will give the yearly salary of that person.
