 # Wage Calculation Factors

This section provides factors and formulas for the calculation of salary and wages and charts for decimal equivalents or parts of an hour and parts of a day.

The following prescribed methods and formulas must be used in calculating wages due. In all instances, mills must be dropped after each separate calculation.

When applying additional salary factors such as location pay, inconvenience pay, also receives, chair stipends, geographic and shift differentials add the annual amount of additional payment to the basic annual salary. Multiply the total annual salary by the biweekly factor to obtain the biweekly rate. If pre-shift briefing pay is also applicable, add this amount to the biweekly rate.
