How to calculate an hourly rate of pay

Payment of salary and allowances is pro-rata for part-time employees and is calculated by dividing the full time salary by 37 (full-time hours) and 52.142 (full-time working weeks) then multiplying by the number of your working hours per week and paid weeks.

You can use our handy pro rata salary calculator to help you.
