The time and a half pay formula is

Triple time pay = standard rate × 3 × number of hours


Let's say the employee's hourly wage rate is $ 20 per hour and worked for 45 hours in a week, including 5 hours of overtime. Then calculate the time and a half pay of the employee for the week


Regular Hours Pay:

Regular Hours Pay = (Regular Hours)(Regular wage Rate)

Regular Hours Pay = (40 hours)($20)

Regular Hours Pay = $800

Overtime Hours Pay:

Overtime Hours Pay = (Overtime r Hours)(Overtime wage Rate)

Overtime Hours Pay = [(5 hours)($20*1.5)]

Overtime Hours Pay = [(5 hours)($30)]

Overtime Hours Pay = $150

Total Hours Pay:

TotalHours Pay = (Regular Hours pay)(Overtime hours pay)

TotalHours Pay = $800+$150

TotalHours Pay = $950

The time a half calculator finds out how much time and a-half pay you can earn in addition to regular pay.
