    Hourly wage calculation for salary employees

    Article ID: 1000600


    You would like to determine what a salary employee would receive hourly.

    Expected Outcome

    You will be able to determine the hourly rate for a salary employee.


    You currently have a salary employee.


    To calculate the hourly wage for a salary employee:
    • Salary amount x pay frequency = annual salary
      (e.g., $1200 x 26 pay periods = $31200)
    • Annual salary/2080 (hours available annually) = Hourly rate
      (e.g., $31200 / 2080 = $15.00 hourly rate)

    2080 is the total available hours for a full-time (40 hours/week). If the employee does not work 40 hours/week, calculate the number of hours the employee works per week, and multiply by 52. i.e., # of hours/week x 52 = total available annually
