SarahH -> How do you convert hourly to salary? (August 22, 2015 11:24:21 AM)

Last year I was converted from an hourly wage to salary. This year at my review, I brought up that my takehome pay for the last year wasn't quite what I expected, it seemed a little short from what I thought I would be getting. My boss told me that my salary was based on 36 hours a week. I thought salary was based on 40 hours a week, and I definitely was on the job for at least 40 hours a week including admin time.

Is this a standard way to calculate salary? I know that my boss was focusing on my productivity and time with patients, but I thought a salary model wasn't dependant on those exact hours, rather my productivity numbers and patient goals would reflect that.

So let's say my hourly wage had been $10 (which it wasn't, just using that number for discussion). When he said let's convert you to salary, I thought for example that I'd be making $20,800 a year (=$10 x 40 hours a week x 52 weeks a year) but instead he paid me $18,720 (=$10 x 36 hours x 52 weeks). So I feel like instead of making the equivalent of a $10 per hour yearly salary, I was in fact making $9 per hour.

What's standard practice for paying PTs salary?

Unfortunately when it comes to counting hours, it all comes down to the organization's ethics and culture.

In today's age, nobody should be dependent on a single source of income and find a way to get freelance work. There might be a way to do that through a good online platform that registers PTs.

All the best!

Yes that sounds about right. When employers switch to salary they are usually looking to save money, not to spend more.
