OVERTIME THRESHOLD

Unread postby ChristelleDP » 13 Sep 2011, 08:08

When calculating the overtime threshold do I include the following allowances:

Housing Allowance
Cell Phone Allowance
Medical Aid Allowance - my company gives an fixed amount for Medical aid, my medical aid is less than this amount therefore the balance gets paid to me as an allowance, do I include this in the threshold amount?

thanks

HI what I need to know is, are these allowance added to the "earnings" when checking if an employee is over or under the Threshold for overtime?

thanks

"Earnings”: means gross pay before deductions, i.e. (before deducting) income tax, pension, medical and similar payments, but excluding similar payments (contributions) made by the employer in respect of the employee.”
