Topics/Call fo Papers

Employers face unique challenges when calculating overtime for non-exempt employees, whether paid hourly, piece work, or salaried. Payroll professionals must consider commissions, bonuses, and other special wage payments, piece rates, shift differentials, multiple pay rates, and actual hours worked during a workweek when making their calculations.
Calculating overtime is not necessarily as simple as taking an employee’s hourly rate and multiplying it by 1.5. Issues include the determination of which employees are eligible for overtime, calculation of the regular rate of pay for overtime-eligible salaried employees, and properly taking into account bonuses, incentives,s, and shift-differential payments. There is a lot more to overtime calculation than initially meets the eye. Mistakes, even honest ones, can be costly. State and federal labor departments regularly issue fines and back pay awards where employers have failed to properly compensate employees for overtime. It is important that payroll professionals know and properly apply the overtime rules.
