Re: Methods to calculate staff salary

Hi,

I've came across 2 different methods to calculate staff's salary as below:

1. Basic Salary / No. of working days in a month (excluded weekend & PH) x No. of days worked

2. Basic Salary / No. of days in current month (calender days) x No. of days worked

Can company use either one of these 2 methods to calcutale staff's salary? how do we define which method is best suite the company and employee.
Please advice, many thanks!

Dear SK

I 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/ 26

S60I (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/ 6

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.

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?
