    Our company has been on a reduced work week at 32 hours / week for over a year now. We are now starting into Layoffs and doing calculations I am inquiring if I use 32 hours / week for their Termination Notice and for Severance pay. (The employment contracts have been revised via letters to each employee stating reducing to 32 hours). Thanks, I appreciate your speedy response back, Erin

    A week’s pay is calculated by:

    – Totalling the employee’s wages, excluding overtime, earned in the last eight weeks in which the employee worked normal or average hours; and
    – Dividing the total by eight.

    As such, you would then calculate based on 32 hours.
