If you are paid a salary, the regular rate for calculating overtime is determined as follows:
1. Multiply the monthly remuneration by 12 (months) to get the annual salary.
2. Divide the annual salary by 52 (weeks) to get the weekly salary.
3. Divide the weekly salary by the number of legal maximum regular hours (40) to get the regular hourly rate.
