Is this correct? Like I say, I only show 160 hours of regular pay a month.
You can be paid on the semi-monthly schedule, I have paid on semi-monthly schedule for hourly employees. It is not the shedule that is wrong but the hours that are incorrect.
If you are working 40 hours a week than you should be paid for all the hours you worked until the pay period goes in. Usually there is two weeks and two days or two weeks and three days. In addition the company needs to keep track of hours per week for the week that is split because anything over 40 in a week is overtime.
