Using the overtime paycheck calculator

You can follow these simple steps to calculate your pay cheque with our overtime paycheck calculator:

Now that we know how to use this overtime paycheck calculator, let's explore the details of such calculations next.

Understanding "what is my overtime pay"

Overtime pay is the financial compensation for the time worked beyond the standard work hours. Here's how we calculate this compensation manually, using the formulas:

  1. First we calculate the total regular pay, where:

    Total regular pay = Regular hours × Regular pay

    For example, 40 hours × $15 per hour = $600

  2. Next, we calculate the overtime pay, where:

    Overtime pay = Regular pay × Overtime pay multiplier

    For example, $15 per hour × 1.5 = $22.5 per hour

  3. And then, we find the total overtime pay:

    Total overtime pay = Overtime hours × Overtime pay

    For instance, 10 hours × $22.5 per hour = $225

  4. Finally, we get our total pay as follows:

    Total pay = Total regular pay + Total overtime pay

    For example, $600 + $225 = $825

We hope these calculations help ensure everyone receives fair compensation for their extra efforts.

⚠️ Some jobs and employees may be exempt from overtime rules. Always check your local labor laws and regulations to understand whether your job is exempt from overtime pay.


How much do I make in overtime, earning $22/hour?

You will be making $660 working 20 hours a month of overtime at a rate of $33/hour (1.5 × $22). At $22/hour working 160 hours a month, your salary is $3520. Adding the overtime makes it a total of $4180.

Let's see how to do it:

  1. Note your regular hourly pay.
  2. Multiply it by 1.5.
  3. The result is your hourly overtime pay.
  4. Next, multiply the hourly overtime pay by the overtime hours.
  5. This is your total overtime pay.

Can I determine my overtime pay?

Yes, you can. The formula that will help you answer "How to determine overtime pay?" looks like this:

Overtime Pay = Regular Pay × Overtime Pay Multiplier

If you're unsure of the multiplier, calculate it as 1.5 times your standard hourly rate.

For example, if you earn $12 per hour:

Overtime pay = 12 × 1.5

Overtime pay = $18
