Reporting using the average hourly wage calculation method

The average hourly wage calculation method is:

  • An alternative to reporting actual hours worked.
  • For firms that report apartment house managers, caretakers, or similar employment where compensation is not tied directly to hours worked. This reporting method is restricted to the risk classes below.

Calculation method

  1. Calculate the total compensation paid to a worker (include direct and indirect compensation dollar value such as housing or utilities provided to the worker).
  2. Divide by the average hourly wage listed below for that risk class.
  3. Report the result as assumed worker hours on your quarterly report.
