### Summer Pay Calculation

The following calculation is used to determine the maximum biweekly rate of pay for summer pay periods for a 9 month employee. Actual rate of pay is negotiated at the department level. See the University Handbook C23.1 for more details.

The annual salary divided by 9 months equals the monthly rate. Monthly salary multiplied by the number of summer months divided by the number of pay periods equals summer bi-weekly pay.

Example: For a 9-month employee with an annual salary of \$69,000.
\$69,000 / 9 months = \$7,666.67 monthly salary
\$7,666.67 x 3 summer months / 6 pay periods = \$3,833.34 compensation rate per pay period.

The compensation rate throughout the year is \$3,450 (\$69,000 / 20 pay periods = \$3,450). This does not mean the employee is receiving a higher salary in the summer. The difference occurs because during the academic year we are spreading the 9-month salary over 20 pay periods which is longer than 9 months.

** The biweekly rate above will be the same for the 7 pay periods during Summer 2013. The annual salary divided by 9 months equals the monthly salary. The monthly salary multiplied by the number of summer months (3.5) divided by the number of pay periods in the summer (7) equals summer bi-weekly pay.
