pensation for holiday work) provided by said act may be paid only to the extent that it does not cause the aggregate compensation for a given pay period to exceed the rate of $10,330 per annum.


In accordance with the provisions of sec. 604 (d) of the Federal Employees' Pay Act
of 1945, as amended, 5 U.S. C. 944, the rates appearing in this table have been computed
as follows:

The annual rate has been divided by 26 and the result adjusted to the nearest cent to
derive the biweekly rate;

The adjusted biweekly rate (40-hour week) has been multiplied by 6 percent and the
et result adjusted to the nearest cent to derive the Civil Service Retirement Act deduction;

The biweekly gross salary has been multiplied by 122 percent and the result adjusted
to the nearest cent to derive the Federal Insurance Contributions Act deduction.

Compensation for fractional pay periods for any cause, including separations, retirements, or leave without pay, will be computed by multiplying the hourly rate shown in the salary table by the number of hours or fractions of hours

For lump-sum payments, the annual leave, first, will be reduced to full pay periods and the regular biweekly rate (40-hour week) applied thereto. The hourly rate shown in the salary table will be applied to any remaining hours or fractions thereof.



The adjusted biweekly rate has been divided by 80 and the result adjusted to the near
est cent to derive the hourly rate;

If a daily rate is desired in any particular instance, the same may be obtained by mul
~ tiplying the adjusted hourly rate by 8.

In accordance with the provisions of sec. 201 of the Federal Employees' Pay Act of
1945, as amended, 5 U. S. c. 911, the adjusted hourly rate has been multiplied by 113
and the result adjusted to the nearest cent to derive the overtime hourly rate in those
instances where the basic annual rate is less than $2,980. In those instances where the
basic annual rate is $2,980 or more, the formula appearing on page 11 of H.R. Report No.
726, 79th Cong., has been applied-that is, 7.6782 percent of the amount by which the
basic annual rate is in excess of $2,980 is subtracted from $894 (the overtime rate for 416
hours at $2,980)—this result has been divided by 416, and the final result has been adjusted
to the nearest cent to derive the overtime hourly rate.

Pursuant to sec. 603 (b) of the Federal Employees' Pay Act of 1945, as amended, 5
U.S. C. 943, additional compensation (overtime pay, night-pay differential, and com.

The amount appearing in italics in each instance is the tax withholding deduction. The
amount directly below this figure is the net to pay if the employee is subject to the Civil
Service Retirement Act. The third amount shown in each block is the net to pay if
the employee is subject to the provisions of the Federal Insurance Contributions Act,
as amended.

The FICA deduction applies to the first $3,600 paid by each agency, or agent thereof,
deemed a separate employer under the

provisions of sec. 203 (c) of the Social Security
Act Amendments of 1950. With respect to wages in excess of $3,600 paid by each agent
in any calendar year, the net to pay amount should, in such cases, be increased by the
related amount in the “123 percent FICA DED." column.

NOTE: Wherever the number of exemptions claimed reduces the tax withholding deduc
lion to zero, no further amounts are shown for that particular rate inasmuch as the net pay
would remain constant from that point on. For example, CPC Grade 1a with 3 exemptions
shows no tac deductions, and the net to pay (65.44 or 68.58) remains the same whether there
are 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or more eremptions, and therefore is not repeated in the table.
