Why is the OT Hour Base Rate is calculated to a different figure than the OT Hour Half Rate if the employee does not have any additional FLSA Earnings?


Due to rounding, the calculated earnings are a penny different between the different rates.

Employee's Hourly Rate of Pay = 16.31701

Base = 16.31701 x .5 = 8.158505
Half = 16.31735 x .5 = 8.158675

Hours = 10.5

10.5 x 8.158505 = 85.664302
10.5 x 8.158675 = 85.666087

85.664302 rounds to 85.66
85.666087 rounds to 85.67
