## Time and a Half Calculator

This time and a half calculator is used to calculate your overtime or holiday pay on the basis of a standard hourly rate. The calculator takes your standard weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, and monthly pay figure and determines the overtime pay at 1.5 times your regular rate.

## What Is Time and a Half Pay?

“Time and half is an increased pay rate typically reserved for the overtime or for the extra working hours”

Employees working more than 40 hours a week are considered overtime in the United States under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). For estimating the overtime rate of employees, companies usually offer time and half rate of the standard working hours.

## How to Calculate Time and a Half?

You calculate time and a half rate by following the given formula:

Time and a half rate = Regular hourly rate x 1.5

Sometimes employers also offer double pay for extra hours, especially during the holiday. The double pay rate actually doubles the standard rate of the employees. It is easy to calculate the double time salary by multiplying the regular standard rate with “2”.

### Example:

Calculate time and a half salary rate of an employee if the regular salary per week of the employee is $400 per week. Solution: Salary per week =$400

Regular hourly rate = $400/40 Regular hourly rate =$10 Per Hour

Time and a half salary rate = $10(1.5) =$15
