# Overview

If an employee works more than one position with different pay rates in the work week, When I Work calculates an employee’s overtime using the weighted average wages of the positions worked.

# Considerations

- Weighted average overtime is currently only supported on weekly or every two week pay periods.
- Weighted average overtime is only calculated on the payroll exports.

# Weighted average overtime calculation

Calculate weighted average overtime by following these steps:

**Calculate the ratio of hours worked across all positions worked.**Divide the hours worked in a certain position by the total worked hours.**Find the number of overtime hours attributable to each position.**Take the total number of hours worked in the week and subtract by the weekly overtime threshold. Then multiply by the ratio of hours worked for that position.**Find the regular worked hours for each position.**Subtract the total hours worked in a position from the number of overtime hours that are attributable to that position.**Calculate the regular pay for each position**by multiplying the regular hours by the the position’s wage rate.**Then calculate overtime hours for each position**by multiplying the overtime hours by the positions wage rate multiplied 1.5**Calculate the attributed pay**. Add together the regular and overtime pay for each position.

## Example calculation

In this example:

- The employee works two different positions during the week:
- Roaster at $20/hour for 8 hours.
- Barista at $10/ hour for 40 hours.

- The account’s weekly overtime threshold is set to 40 hours/week.

- Calculate the ratio of hours worked:

Position Roaster Calculation 8 / (8 + 40) = **16.67 %**Position Barista Calculation 40 / (8 + 40) = **83.33%**Position Calculation Roaster 8 / (8 + 40) = **16.67 %**Barista 40 / (8 + 40) = **83.33%** - Calculate the number of overtime hours for each position:

Position Roaster Calculation (48 – 40) x 16.67% = **1.333333333**Position Barista Calculation (48-40) x 83.33% = **6.666666666**Position Calculation Roaster (48 – 40) x 16.67% = **1.333333333**Barista (48-40) x 83.33% = **6.666666666** - Calculate the regular hours for each position:

Position Roaster Calculation 8 – 1.333333333 = **6.666666667**Position Barista Calculation 40 – 6.666666667 = **33.333333333**Position Calculation Roaster 8 – 1.333333333 = **6.666666667**Barista 40 – 6.666666667 = **33.333333333** - Calculate the regular and overtime pay for each position:

Position Roaster Wage 20 Regular pay calculation 20 x 6.666666667 = **$133.3333**Overtime pay calculation 20 x 1.333333333 x 1.5 = **$40.00**Position Barista Wage 10 Regular pay calculation 10 x 33.333333333 = **$333.3333**Overtime pay calculation 10 x 6.666666667 x 1.5 = **$100.00**Position Wage Regular pay calculation Overtime pay calculation Roaster 20 20 x 6.666666667 = **$133.3333**20 x 1.333333333 x 1.5 = **$40.00**Barista 10 10 x 33.333333333 = **$333.3333**10 x 6.666666667 x 1.5 = **$100.00** - Find the total attributed pay: (133.3333 + 333.3333) + (40.00 + 100.00) =
**$606.6667**The**Adjusted Hourly Rates**for the example employee are as follows:

**Adjusted Hourly Rate**606.6667 / 48 = **$12.6389****Adjusted Overtime Hourly Rate**140 / 8 = **$17.50****Adjusted Hourly Rate**606.6667 / 48 = **$12.6389****Adjusted Overtime Hourly Rate**140 / 8 = **$17.50**
