# Undertime Deduction Calculator

The *Undertime Deduction Calculator* is a tool for both employees
and employers to calculate the salary deduction based on the employee's
undertimes. You just need to specify the required working time for the
employee - 8 hours per day, 40 hours per week or 160 hours per month. Then
you can enter the worked time on the calculator and the salary deduction
will be calculated accordingly.

## How to Use the Undertime Deduction Calculator

The very first thing you need to do is either you are calculating deduction for a daily, weekly or monthly salary deduction based on undertimes. The calculator only accommodates the totaled time, say for example, an employee only worked 7:45 hours the past day and 6:30 hours today. If you need to enter something like 8:00AM to 5:00, then check out this Timesheet Calculator.

The calculator is separated in only two parts - the settings and the time entries table. To elaborate it's step by step usage, check this out:

- Step 1
On the

`Settings`

part, there's*Time Duration*,*Work Time*,*Hourly Rate*and*Time Input Format*. Each has its functionality but let's focus for now on work time and time input format. The*Work Time*represents the required time where the employee needs to work. For example, 8 hours, 40 hours or 160 hours. - Step 2
Still on the settings portion, determine whether you want to input a default time (example:

`8:30 hours`

) or a decimal time format (example:`8.5 hours`

). The default is the`Hours:Minutes`

time format. - Step 3
The next step is to actually add the time entries. Say a worker worked - 7:30 hours on Monday, 5:45 on Tuesday, 9:00 on Wednesday and so on. This is considering that your required time is 8 hours per day. It's the same logic that applies to weekly or monthly time, just change the required work time. Say for example, you have changed the

`Work Time`

to 40 hours. Then, you can enter 35 hours, 45 hours and 39 hours and so on, on the time entries table. You can add more rows by clicking the`+Add Row`

button. You can delete them as well by clicking the`x`

remove icon. - Step 4
The last step is to click on the

`Calculate`

button to get your results. Below the table are the totality of the results like total time, undertimes, regular pays, deductions and total pay. By default, the monetary unit used are all in USD.

## Undertime Deduction Calculator Options and Inputs

As previously mentioned, the calculator is separated into two (2) parts - the settings and time entries. On the settings part, there are four (4) options you can personalize and on the time entries, there are two (2) default input fields. Let's have a look on each one of them.

### Time Duration

The `Time Duration`

is a representation whether you are
calculating a daily or weekly undertime deduction. Clicking the
`Daily`

or `Weekly`

button will change the
default `Work Time`

to 8 hours and 40 hours accordingly.

### Work Time

This is probably on the most important part of the calculator, the
`Work Time`

. It is the required work time by the employee.
You can add either 8 hours, if it's a daily undertime calculation. You
can also choose to add 40 hours if it's weekly or 160 hours if this is
a monthly basis.

### Hourly Rate

The *Hourly Rate* is the basic salary of the employee on an
hourly basis. This has a default of 25 dollars per hour. We have used
dollar sign here but it's just a representation, this could be your
country's currency. There's no currency exchange being done here so
there's no conversion involved.

### Time Input Format

The *Time Input Format* will determine the type of time you can
enter on the time input fields - a standard time format or a decimal
time format. The usual time format is like this - 9:45 or 8:30. While
the decimal time format is 9.75 or 8.5.

### Time Input

The *Time Input* is where you need to enter your time entries.
Say you want to know the overtime pay for 9:45 hours. Just enter this
value on the calculator given that you have chosen the
`Hours: Minutes`

time input format.

### Calculate and Add Row Buttons

The `Calculate`

button is the trigger to start the
calculation where the results are displayed at the bottom part of the
time table. The `+Add Row Button`

button is used to add
more time entry row. You can add as many as you want and you can
delete them by clicking on the `x`

icon.
