Re: Wages calculation

Please advice, how shd a company count on the wages with the below scenario:

Date Joined: 01/07/2008
Date Resign: 08/08/2008
Notice Needed: 1 week
Last date of employment: 14/08/2008
* with 2 days unpaid leave (therefore, working days only 12 days)
* if the basic salary: Rm4,000

How to calculate on the above? What will be my net salary bring home?

As I know, if I have complete a full month service...the following month should be Rm4000/no. of working days x 12 instead of 31.

I am not sure about that. You may consult the Labour Office.

Hi Carol,

Maybe this would help:

July's salary = 4000/31*31 = 4000
Aug's salary (1/8 ~ 14/8) = 4000/31*14 = 1806.45
Deduct 2 days unpaid on Aug = 1806.45 - (4000/31*2) = 1806.45 - 258.06 = 1548.39 (deduct any lawful statutory deduction = net salary)

checked with my hr... they oni count on my working days without incl. sat & sun... therefore if work from 1/8 - 14/8 I oni have 10 days pay (off course less the 2 days unpaid leave).

Not suppose to be 14 days pay meh???

If you are monthly paid staff you should follow Syl calculation. He is perfectly correct.

If you are daily paid staff, the formula will be

4000/21 days (working days in August) as you consider that you only work 5 days a week. (yr working days without incl. sat & sun)

Therefore you work 10 days from 1st to14th Aug (minus 4days -2, 3, 9 & 10) less 2 unpaid leave = 8 days why do you want to request for 14 days?
if you know that you work 5 days a week. Your August salary for daily paid is RM1,523.81 but if you are a monthly paid your salary will be RM1,548.39
