Frequently Asked Questions About Remuneration

Questions and answers to help you understand remuneration


How must I calculate this?

I assume you have already agreed with your employee that she may take the time off rather than pay her out as required by Section 10 of the BCEA.

She is entitled to 90 min paid time off for every hour worked. If she has worked 40 hours over and above her normal working hours, you must calculate the overtime she is due by multiplying it by 1.5.

She is owed 60 hours on full pay. If her normal working hours are 8 hours a day, five days a week (Monday to Friday), you divide the 60 hours by 8.

She is entitled to 7.5 working days off on full pay.

If her normal hours are 9 hours a day, you divide the total hours by 9 which will equal to 6.67 days off on full pay.

“I recently had the pleasure of using FIC CONSULTING, and Tiaan Dwyer. He is very professional and incredibly knowledgeable, and an absolute gentleman. He focuses on small/ medium businesses. As an owner of a small business trying to navigate staff issues and labour law is a nightmare.

Should you need assistance with anything labour related, please do not hesitate to contact him. 5 star service is what you will get. Thank you Tiaan for all your help.”
