 Jim Brown 07/08/2008 17:07:37 Dear SKI am not sure where you got the calculation from. However, the employement act has a calculation as follows:S60I (1A)"Where an employee is employed on a monthly rate of pay, the ordinary rate of pay shall be calculated accoding to the following formula:Monthly rate of pay/ 26S60I (1B)"Where an employee is employed on a weekly rate of pay, the ordinary rate of pay shall be calculated accoding to the following formula:Weekly rate of pay/ 6Rgds Edit | Delete

 MQ 10/08/2008 22:07:58 No. 2 is correct for monthly salary. Monthly means the number of days in that particular month x the number of days worked. Base on monthly calculation meaning we are paid during the weekend. Edit | Delete

 SK 11/08/2008 10:08:50 Hi MQ,Understood. Many Thanks! Edit | Delete

 Jasmine 24/09/2008 16:51:58 Does that mean that even we're employed on a monthly rate of pay and our working days are Mon-Fri,we get paid only on the days we work and weekends are not included?But wouldn't that be a daily wage worker's calculation? Edit | Delete
