How is overtime calculated on a bi monthly pay payroll?
Example: Employee works a total of 55 hours during the week. The employee had 40 hours of "Regular Time" (sometimes called "straight-time") and 15 hours of "Overtime."
Payroll is calculated by taking how many hours the employee worked and multiplying it by how much the employee gets paid per hour. Any money being withheld for taxes, insuranc…e, retirement plans, etc should be subtracted from the employees pay. Most electronic time clocks that monitor when employees check in and out can be connected with payroll software to automatically calculate the payroll based on the employee's time worked.
If overtime pay is 1 1/2, then it would be calculated like so... (hours worked) x (regular pay) x 1.5
A payroll is, in layman's terms, the out goings a company has to spend on its staff or human resources. These are often very complicated and difficult to figure out due to fac…tors such as staff illness, holiday pay and leaves of absence. It is important to make sure your pay roll is correctly administered as payroll's are used to help figure out company and personal taxes. Inability to keep these records properly can lead to big fines.
at one and one half times the hourly rate
Payroll In a functional accounting sense, "payroll" consists of an employer's activities related to the compensation it pays to its employees (payroll accounting, payroll tax… return preparation, benefits administration). However, the term "payroll" is also used broadly to refer to the dollar amount of an employer's liability for cash wages he must pay to his employees (as in "my company's total annual payroll is $100,000.") In this sense "payroll" refers to the employee compensation expense of a business. Payroll for a given employee is calculated as follows: 1. Start with Gross Pay For a salaried employee, gross pay equals the employee's flat salary per pay period. For an hourly employee, gross pay equals the number of hours worked multiplied by his hourly rate. If the employee works overtime, or has more than one hourly rate, multiply the applicable hours by those special rates. 2. Subtract deductions from gross pay to arrive at the employee's net pay. Some major deductions are: Income taxes - Federal, State and Local, if applicable (also called "withholding taxes") Social Security and Medicare tax Employee contributions to the state's unemployment or worker's compensation fund (if applicable) Deductions for employee benefits (Medical/401(k) plan contributions, etc.) Wage garnishments (often calculated as a percentage of gross salary) 3. After all deductions have been made, the amount left over is the employee's net pay. This process is easily automated, and there are a variety of software packages to handle payroll processing. There are also "widgets" and free websites that can be used in a pinch to calculate employee paychecks. Large companies will usually want to use payroll service bureaus, such as ADP. They can also handle the various payroll tax reporting and deposit requirements, which can be quite complex. There are different models for forecasting future payroll expense, but the simplest way is to multiply expected average headcount for the future period by the current average compensation rate, and then multiply the product by the average percent wage increase to be effective in the future period. But this assumes that the range of salaries is fairly evenly distributed among the current employees, and that future headcount will reflect a similar salary distribution range.
Semi Monthly payroll means you get paid twice a month - most common semi monthly payrolls are every 5th and 20th.
Based on the specific state ruling to allow for a semi-monthly period, the period is as equal as possible amount of time twice each month. Examples: 1st - 15th and …16th - 31st (End of Month) 5th - 20th and 21st - 4th 10th to 25th and 26th to 9th.
The most common pay dates are the 15th and End of Month. The next most common is the 1st and 15th. While the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month seems to be the next most common. …There are many other combinations but these seem to cover a very high percentage that we see in our business.

Overtime pay.. Most overtime hours are payed 1& 1/2 times your original hourly pay. SO if your payed $10.00 an hour you will be payed $15.00 for every overtime hour. $1…2.00 would be $18.00 an hour in overtime pay. $6.50 an hour would be $9.75 an hour overtime rate. Some states have their own policy on overtime pay but the national law is 1 1/2 times your original hourly wage. Some professions are excluded ,see your labor rights poster which should be posted at your job in an area where all employees are readily able to read and understand it. Time and one-half the "regular hourly rate." If an employees regular pay is not expressed as an "hourly" rate, their regular pay rate must be converted to an hourly equivalent. Hourly rate -- (regular pay rate for an employee paid by the hour). If more than 40 hours are worked, at least one and one-half times the regular rate for each hour over 40 is due. Piece rate -- The regular rate of pay for an employee paid on a piecework basis is obtained by dividing the total weekly earnings by the total number of hours worked in that week. The employee is entitled to an additional one-half times this regular rate for each hour over 40, plus the full piecework earnings. Another way to compensate pieceworkers for overtime, if agreed to before the work is performed, is to pay one and one-half times the piece rate for each piece produced during the overtime hours. The piece rate must be the one actually paid during nonovertime hours and must be enough to yield at least the minimum wage per hour. Salary -- the regular rate for an employee paid a salary for a regular or specified number of hours a week is obtained by dividing the salary by the number of hours for which the salary is intended to compensate. If, under the employment agreement, a salary sufficient to meet the minimum wage requirement in every workweek is paid as straight time for whatever number of hours are worked in a workweek, the regular rate is obtained by dividing the salary by the number of hours worked each week. To illustrate, suppose an employee's hours of work vary each week and the agreement with the employer is that the employee will be paid $420 a week for whatever number of hours of work are required. Under this agreement, the regular rate will vary in overtime weeks. If the employee works 50 hours, the regular rate is $8.40 ($420 divided by 50 hours). In addition to the salary, half the regular rate, or $4.20 is due for each of the 10 overtime hours, for a total of $462 for the week. If the employee works 60 hours, the regular rate is $7.00 ($420 divided by 60 hours). In that case, an additional $3.50 is due for each of the 20 overtime hours, for a total of $490 for the week. In no case may the regular rate be less than the minimum wage required by FLSA. If a salary is paid on other than a weekly basis, the weekly pay must be determined in order to compute the regular rate and overtime pay. If the salary is for a half month, it must be multiplied by 24 and the product divided by 52 weeks to get the weekly equivalent. A monthly salary should be multiplied by 12 and the product divided by 52.
The most important thing to determine if the STATE allows for the employer to pay their employees semi-monthly as each state is governed by their own pay day laws. …The next thing is to give your employees at least 30 days notice for them to plan out their finances. Next to consider is what the advantage would be to change from BW to SM. Currently, the specific 40 hour work week can easily be calculated for overtime. With a BW pay period from Sunday to Saturday and Sun to Sat, then processing time the week after for a pay date on Friday is very routine and simple. A semi monthly pay period may end in the middle of the week. Then the next payroll you must determine if there is any overtime to be paid for that split week. This can become an ardous task to compare timesheets from one week/period to the next. With a semi-monthly, the cycle has to be decided. Will the pay period be the 1st to the 15th, then 16th to the end of the month? In this case when will the pay date be? Again, you must check on state requirements. Let's say the 1-15th is paid on the 15th. IF you have the ability to have direct deposit, the payroll would probably need processed 2-3 days prior to the pay date. Then to consider is the overtime of those days when you actually estimated the time. So then, you'll need to pay retro pay on the next payroll for those overtime hours. If however, you choose to pay on the 20th or the 25th, then you would have time to pay all employees with no lag time. Once the period is decided, you can not change at your whim. It must be posted so the employees know when their pay cycle will be paid. If you consider the above, in my humble opinion, a biweekly period is by far easier to manage. To actually change the pay period, choose when you want to start with the new cycle. A good start would be the first of the new year. So, if your first pay period in the new year is January 1st to the 15th, your pay date is the 15 to the 20th. Work backward from there. Is the current pay period ending this week or next... plan out each pay period until then. You may end up with a few extra days that you will have to give a separate extra pay period for the hours earned. The wages will not be considered supplemental wages, but will need to be calculated properly for the current pay period.

This is a common misconception and is overly simplified. A true overtime rate should be time and 1/2 on the "Base Rate" of pay or the factor of 1.5 against the unburdened …rate. Example: Each employer (or a Contractor that supplies and laborer) has profit, overhead, and taxation built into a billable rate. If I provide a laborer to a client at a Rate of $50 an hour, only $40 of this is actually being paid to the laborer. The rest is taxes, insurence, benefits, and profit. An overtime factor should never be applied to a rate that contains this. The OT rate should be 1.5 X $40 plus the $10 overhead costs. Which would be $70.00 hour. If you're being charged an OT rate of $75 hour then you're being gouged.
