    Default How to convert annual salary base to FLSA hour rate.

    I want to make sure that I have the formula right to figure this out. I'm researching the hour rate to make sure it matches the salary rate.

    216 hours per pay period. We have 13 pay periods. FLSA Hours are 2808
    There are 13 pay periods. Each period we obtain 4 hours of over time. That comes to 52 hours of over time
    total.

    2756 is straight pay

    52 is over time pay

    The hour rate is 11.51

    2756 x 11.51 = 31,721
    52 x 17.26 = 898
    32,619 Total pay based on FLSA formula

    Is that the right way of doing it?

    Why don't you ask someone in payroll in your department or the city's finance department?

    I bet they know how.

    That's the problem.

    This pay 11.51H is based on a 33,000 pay scale.

    I was working on my taxes and I worked hardly no overtime last year and I made under my base pay.

    I have sent my finding up the chain of command in my department. My local has the numbers and we are researching them right now and waiting too see what Chief says.

    I did these numbers based on what I have given for FLSA from my department.

    I just wanted to confirm that the numbers and FLSA were right.

    I'd say you're on the right track.

    Working backwards from a Salary of $33,000........

    $33,000 divided by the number of pay periods (13) = $2,538.46.

    212 hour reg time plus 4 hours OT is the equivalent of 218 reg hours.

    $2,538.46 divided by 218 = $11.64 per hour.

    You have to know your FLSA period to get it exact. If you get me the flsa, your schedule, and pay frequency I can work it out better for you.

    Here is an example breakdown for hours per pay period using a bi weekly pay period and an 18 day FLSA period:

    365 days/18 day work period = 20.277 work periods in a year.
    20.277 work periods * 144 hours actually worked = 2919.888 hours worked in a year
    365 days/14 day pay periods = 26.071 pay periods in a year
    2919.888 hours worked in a year/26.071 pay periods = 112 hours per pay period.

    Now for the FLSA overtime:

    365 days/18 day work period = 20.277 work periods in a year.
    20.277 work periods * 8 hours of overtime (144- 136) = 162.216 hours worked in a year
    365 days/14 day pay periods = 26.071 pay periods in a year
    162.216 hours worked in a year/26.071 pay periods = 6 hours of 1/2 time per pay period.

    This is just straight FLSA. You are also entitled to FLSA for your re-occurring incentives ie medic, longevity, education etc.

    Listed below is the FLSA maximum hour chart. Everything above these thresholds is considered overtime.
