Calculating Gross Salary

To calculate gross salary, use the campus 'Funding Layout Assistance Tool' (FLOAT), available on OHR's Payroll Toolkit.

Appointment letters include the biweekly salary amount. This amount is calculated by taking the full-time academic year rate, divided by 19.5, multiplied by the appointment percentage:

Example: 33.4% Lecturer (SA) with the full-time rate of $45,000:

45,000 / 19.5 * .334 = $770.77
