OPP Wage Grid

Postby vincens » Tue Jul 17, 2012 3:28 pm

Not sure if anyone can help me here, but there seems to be something odd with the OPP wage grid - the hourly, weekly and bi-weekly rates don't seem to match up with the annual rates. I assumed that they would based on a standard 40 hour work week (and 26 pay periods in the year), but they don't appear to be (they seem to be lower).

Can anyone shed some light on this?

I don't know what you're talking about?

It just shows the yearly salary.

Never mind, I figured it out. The annual salary is divided by 52.176 weeks (factor takes into account that on average, a year has 365.25 days due to leap years). If you only use 52 weeks, you get the wrong figure.

Now that's a future S/Sgt. in the making.
