Always remember, 26 is used only for the calculation of ORP (Ordinary Rate of Pay) for those matters in Part 12 of the Employment Act like overtime, annual leave pay, sick leave pay, holiday pay and so on. The formula is given in Section 60I of that Act. Read Part 12 at http://pesaraonline.net/part12.htm Yes, some companies do use 21 or 22 because of 5day week.
For calculation of salary, just simple a arithmetic, you use the actual number of days in that month. In your case, your calculation appears to be not right. It should be (1600/31)x13 (19 31 comes to 13 days rest days included) =RM670.97 If you were to calculate his pay for 1  18 Jan, it will come to (1600/31)x 18 = 929.03. The two totals 670.97 + 929.03 will come to exactly 1600. Is this OK? Your calculation will come to only RM426.67, looks like that staff is shortchanged.
