Computing Regular Rate of Pay - Employee Working at Two or More Rates
When, in a single workweek, an employee performs two or more different types of work for which different straight-time rates have been established, the employee’s regular rate for that week can be calculated as the weighted average of such rates. The weighted average is the earnings from all such rates added together, and the total is divided by the total number of hours worked at all jobs. 29 C.F.R. § 778.115.
