    Follow up to a previous question, engineering consulting firm in Nova Scotia. Based on the previous answer and example given below, Could you confirm that the hours between 40 hours and 48 hours are still paid at straight time? Then at the point they hit 48, overtime pay kicks in and is then required to be paid at 1.5 their regular wage.
    Salaried Employees
    To calculate the hourly overtime rate for employees in Nova Scotia, divide the employee’s salary (per week) by the employee’s regular set hours worked per week. If there are no set hours, the number of hours should be a fair representation of a normal workweek. Once you have the employee’s regular hourly rate, you can calculate overtime by multiplying the hourly wage by the number of overtime hours worked (over 48 hours per week).
    To calculate overtime pay for a salaried employee in Nova Scotia, we’ll use the example of Amir, who works in marketing operations earning $975.00 per week. Amir’s set hours are 40 hours per week, Monday through Friday.
    One week, Amir works 50 hours, which means he is owed two hours of overtime pay (50 – 48 = 2). His overtime pay can be calculated as follows:

    Regular pay: $975 / 40 hours per week = $24.38 per hour
    Overtime pay: $24.38 x 1.5 = $36.57 per hour
    Total overtime pay: $36.57 x 2 hours of overtime = $73.14
    Amir’s total pay is her regular pay plus his total overtime pay: $975.00 + $73.14 = $1,048.14
