Pay Rate Calculator


How to Use the Pay Rate Calculator
Depending on the information you provide, the Pay Rate Calculator computes different information: Calculator
  • Enter your annual salary to get your bi-weekly gross
  • Enter your bi-weekly gross to see your annual salary
  • Calculate hourly and premium rates that could apply if you are paid overtime

If you are paid on an hourly or daily basis, the annual salary calculation does not apply to you. Your bi-weekly pay is calculated by multiplying your daily or hourly rate times the number of days or hours you are paid.


How Leap Year Changes your Bi-Weekly Gross
In leap years, the calculation of your bi-weekly gross is based on 366 days instead of regular 365 days. Your annual salary remains the same whether it is a leap year or not. Your bi-weekly gross changes slightly in the first pay period of a leap year and in the first pay period after the end of a leap year, due to the one day difference.

Keep in mind:

  • The City's payroll system is based on the fiscal year covering the period July 1 through June 30
  • Fiscal Year 2016 beginning July 1, 2015 is a leap year
  • The calculator is set for a leap year

Calculating Your Annual Salary Using Bi-Weekly Gross
  • 14 days in a bi-weekly pay period
  • 366 days in the year
  • Formula: Annual Salary = Bi-Weekly Gross/ 14 days X 366 days
  • Example: if your bi-weekly gross is $1,916.85, your Annual Salary = $1,916.85 / 14 days X 366 days = $50,112


Calculate Your Bi-Weekly Gross Using Your Annual Salary
  • 366 days in a year
  • 14 days in a bi-weekly pay period
  • Formula: Bi-Weekly Gross = Annual Salary / 366 days X 14 days
  • Example: if your annual salary is $50,112, your Bi-Weekly Gross = $50,112 / 366 days X 14 days = $1,916.85


Calculate Your Hourly Rate Using Your Annual Salary
  • Regular Hours Per Year = Regular Hours Per Day X 261 Work Days Per Year

2,088
  • Formula: Hourly Rate = Bi-Weekly Gross / (Hours/Year)
  • Example: if your Annual Salary is $50,112 and you work 40 Hours/Week (or 2,088 Hours/Year), your Hourly Rate = $50,112 / 2,088 = $24.00


Calculating Premium Rates
For premium rate Time and One-Half, multiply your hourly rate by 1.5. For instance, if your Hourly Rate is $24.00, your Premium Rate at Time and One-Half = $24.00 X 1.5 = $36.00

For premium rate Double Time, multiply your hourly rate by 2. For instance, for Hourly Rate $24.00, the Premium Rate at Double Time = $24.00 X 2 = $48.00
