  • Here is an example of how to calculate daily rate with vacation pay included:

Jane is an EA and gets paid 21.79/hour, earns holiday pay at 3/52 (3 weeks) and is 86% (6.02 hr day):

  1. $21.79 x 3/52 = $1.26 per hour vacation pay
  2. $21.79 + $1.26 = $ 23.05 per hour with vacation pay included
  3. $23.05 x 6.02 = $138.76 daily rate
  4. $138.76 x 5 = $693.80 weekly rate
