 HRExec 14/06/2010 14:33:31 Re: Overtime Rate for Public Holiday - Security Guard My Company has 4 guards. 2 are working for day shift and another 2 for night shift based on 12 hours rotating shift schedule. We work 5 days a week. Would appreciate if you could clarify the following:1) Sat and Sun shall be deemed as overtime work right?2) If they work on Public Holiday, is this the right calculation:Example : Work 10 hoursBasic Salary : RM1200Formula (Less than 8 hours) = ORP x 2= 1200/26 x 2 = RM92.30Formula (More than 8 hours-Balance 2 hours)= OT hours x 3.0 x Hourly rate of pay= 2 x 3.0 x [1200/26/8] = RM34.6110 hours = RM92.30 + RM34.61 = RM126.913) My boss said since they work 7 days a week ( Sat&Sun-OT), to get their ORP, their basic salary shall be divided by 30 days instead of 26 days. Is that correct according to Employment Acc 1955?Thanks in advance for your reply. Edit | Delete

 HRExec 14/06/2010 15:18:51 Thanks for your prompt response. How about question no 1 and 2? correct or wrong? Edit | Delete

 KL Siew 14/06/2010 16:29:31 1. Working normal hours on Saturday and Sunday is 1200/26 x 1 = RM46.15. For overtime after 8 hours 2 x hourly rate2. Working normal hours on public holidays 1200/26 x 2 = RM92.30. For overtime after 8 hours 3 x hours rate. Edit | Delete

 HRExec 14/06/2010 17:35:42 thanks. meaning that no 1 and 2 are correct but no 3 is wrong. so i shall be 26 days. Edit | Delete

 KL Siew 14/06/2010 19:37:00 I cannot say because I don't know whether your calculation is for working on rest days or public holidays. Edit | Delete
