Biweekly Earnings Calculation

12 Month Employees

The state of New Jersey bases the gross biweekly earnings calculation on the number of work days in the fiscal year. The number of work days in a fiscal year for a twelve month employee can vary from 260 through 262 days. In fiscal year 2018, the number of work days is 260. Therefore, in order to calculate the gross biweekly earnings, the annual salary is divided by 260.

Example: Fiscal year 2018 = 260 work days

Biweekly Calculation: 260 Annual Work Days/10 Work Days Per Pay Period=26.0

Annual Salary: $30,000/26.0 = $1,153.85 Biweekly Earnings

10 Month Employees

To calculate the gross biweekly earnings for a ten month employee the annual is divided by 22.
