Flat Rate

piece rate
Piece Rate
  • Worker is paid per item they produce.
  • Paid a low basic rate with additional earnings.
  • Tends to be used in factories
  • More worker produces, more they get paid

Advantages

  • Acts as an incentive to work hard

Disadvantages

  • Employees may need to be penalised if quality not maintained

R Alexander

time rate
Time Rate
  • Workers are paid by the hour (e.g. £6.50 per hour) eg £6.50 X 20 hours = £130.00
  • Service sector and manual workers often paid this way

Advantages

  • Simple to calculate for employer
  • Rewards time spent at work for employee

Disadvantages

  • Doesn’t provide any incentive to produce quality work

R Alexander

overtime
Overtime
  • Overtime is extra hours worked over and above their set number of hours.
  • Normal hourly time rate usually rises for overtime worked e.g. double-time.

R Alexander

bonus rate
Bonus Rate
  • Additional payments received on top of basic wage.
  • Paid when employee meets targets:
    • Productivity
    • Time-keeping
    • Efficiency
  • Bonus is added to their basic pay

commission
Commission
  • Used in many organisations e.g. car showrooms, double-glazing etc.
  • Is calculated as a percentage of the products’ sales value.
  • Eg a car sells for £15,000 and the commission rate is 5%. The salesman would earn £750.
  • May be the only method of paying employees or added on to basic wage/salary

Advantage

  • Used as an incentive by employers for employees to sell more

Disadvantage

  • Supervisors must keep an eye on staff to ensure they aren’t using dodgy selling techniques.
