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?
"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.”
