Hello! Good eve!
I have the same line of problem with daisa, but the thing is, I already searched about this, read the formula but I still don't understand how it done. Still confused on our HR/Payroll Accountant's computation of our Basic Salary and Overtime Charges.
I am an employee in our Company for 7 years and 11 months to be exact now. It is a practice in our Company not to have any contract for employees. So, if an employee wanted to go, there is no contract he/she is breaching. I started here in our Company in 2005 and they offered me 8,000 for a month which is my Basic Gross Salary according to my payslip. Our term of payment is 1-15 and 16-30/31. Before, our HR/Payroll Accountant computed our overtime, and her formula is 8,000 / 26 (days) / 8 (hrs) x 125% x (applicable time of OT). That is what her practice before.
Last year, they hired a messenger. In the messenger's overtime computation, she just divided the offered salary into only 22 days instead of 26 days. I asked her why? She said, because they are only new and under provi. They only paid in daily basis, that's why only 22 days. In result, that messenger has hourly rate of 62.93 and mine is 68.5 [2013 Basic Salary = 14,250 (inclusive of allowance which is in tax shield)] / 26 / 8 x 125% x (applicable time of OT). I got mad on her because, why is it like that. 7 years employee over 2 months employee? So unfair computation, I said... Then she said, "Ok, I will re-compute it and will compute yours and ours into same days, 22 days"....
We are charging our Saturday as OT when our boss asked us to work for that day.
Another thing is, we have a new hired employee. They offered her 10,032. They said that it is the minimum. 456 (minimum wage per day) x 22 days = 10,032.
My questions are:
1. Is our Company violating any laws regarding these computation and basic salary?
2. What is the real cleared formula for these OT and basic salary? Is it divided into 22 days or 26 days?
3. Is the monthly salary for a 15/15 paid employee is only 10,032?
PLEASE HELP.... Thank you in advance for any reply! (^_^)
