Question

As an entry level new clubhouse manager at the Country Club you have been assigned the position of scheduling and preparing and monitoring overtime pay for the club's unionized employees. You have scheduled two employees for the last week of December where overtime pay conditions have occurred. This was a hectic period with numerous holiday functions and the New Year's celebration. Overtime pay will be paid at the rate of 1.5 times the base rate.

Ben worked two different jobs at different pay rates. Job #1 - Club Bussing...paid $10 per hour for 40 hours (40 hours X $10 per hour = $400) Job #2 - Prep Cook...paid $14 per hour for 8 hours (8 hours X $14 per hour = $112) What was Ben's base pay rate? Show and identify your work and how you arrived at your answer. What was Ben paid in total for this week of work? Show and identify your work and how you arrived at your answer.

Answer #1

1. Ben's base pay rate for Club Bussing:

Since overtime pay rate is 1.5 times the base pay rate.

Overtime pay rate for Club Bussing = $10 per hour

Hence base pay rate for Club Bussing = 10/1.5 = $6.67 per hour

2. Ben's base pay rate for Prep Cook:

Since overtime pay rate is 1.5 times the base pay rate.

Overtime pay rate for Prep Cook = $14 per hour

Hence base pay rate for Prep Cook = 14/1.5 = $9.33 per hour

3. Ben's overtime pay for Club Bussing = $400

Ben's overtime pay for Prep Cook = $112

Hence Ben's total pay for this week of work = $400 + $112 = $512

Example 2-19 Matt Leonard earns $739.20 a week with fluctuating
workweek hours. If he worked 48 hours in one week, his gross pay
would be calculated as follows: $739.20 ÷ 48 hours = $15.40 regular
rate $15.40 × 0.5 = $7.70 extra half pay rate 8 hours O.T. × $7.70
= $61.60 extra pay $739.20 + $61.60 = $800.80 weekly gross pay
Example 2-21 The agreement between John Kalas and his employer
provides for a pay rate of $14 per...
