Does this Salary Fit You? • A salary is the money an employee receives in exchange for doing a job. • An offer is the salary an employer agrees to pay. • A counteroffer is your alternate proposal for a salary with which you would be satisfied. • A salary range is the difference between an initial low salary and the highest possible salary that a company will pay for a job. • Salaries are listed by an hourly rate (payment for each hour worked) or an annual rate(payment for the year). Chapter 16

  17. Digital Snapshot: Salary and Benefit Options • When calculating a total salary, you have many things to consider. • Does the job offer paid holidays, or paid time off (PTO)? • Does the job offer benefits, such as health care or matching investments into a retirement account? • The “extras” constitute what is called a salary package, or a combination of salary plus benefits. • Employees who receive an annual salary are often called salaried employees. Normally, they are not paid for overtime, but they may receive bonuses. Hourly employees can work overtime, or hours in addition to their normal weekly work. Many of these hours receive overtime pay, often 50% more than the normal rate, or “time-and-a-half.” Chapter 16
