Round Inputs to Nearest
Some employers round clock time as allowed by U.S. Federal Regulations. We offer 3 ways to round Start Times and End Times each day:
Round to the Nearest • 15 minutes, also known as the 7 minute rule. Decimal hours are rounded to the nearest quarter hour with two decimal places (.00, .25, .50, .75). • 5 minutes • 6 minutes, also referred to as 1/10 or one-tenth of an hour. Decimal hours are rounded to the nearest tenth of an hour with two decimal places (.00, .10, .20, .30, .40, etc.)
Enter = Tab

How to Convert hh:mm Digital Time to Decimal Hours
Employers typically use decimal hours to calculate work week pay. They take the number of hours worked in a week in decimal form, and multiply that by the rate of pay. If you worked 41:15, 41 hours and 15 minutes, how would you calculate your total pay?
You need to convert the hh:mm time of 41:15 to decimal hours.
Converting from Minutes to Decimal Hours
You worked 41 whole hours, so that will be the same in decimal hours. You only need to convert 15 minutes into decimal hours.
Take your number of minutes and divide by 60. In this example your partial hour is 15 minutes: 15/60 = 0.25
Add your whole hours back in to get 41.25 hours. So 41 hours, 15 minutes equals 41.25 hours.
Multiply your rate of pay by decimal hours to get your total pay before taxes.
In Reverse, Converting from Decimal Hours to Minutes
Take your number of minutes and multiply by 60
Say you had a decimal of 0.75 hours. Multiply: 0.75 × 60 = 45 minutes
With the start and end times in a 24-hour and decimal format, you can simply subtract the start time from the end time to determine the total work hours. For example: As John started work at 8:00 AM (08:00) and finished at 5:15 PM (17:00), his total work hours amount to 9:15 hours (17:15 – 8:00 = 9:15).
For most full-time employment, the calculation is based on a 40-hour workweek. Therefore, multiplying 40 hours by 52 weeks results in 2,080 hours worked per year. This method assumes that the employee works every week of the year without taking any time off.
Add up the number of hours from each week to get your total.Divide by the total number of weeks. The resulting number is the average hours you would have worked during weeks when you took your previous leave.
Weekly: Hours per day x 5. Biweekly: Hours per day x 10. Semi-monthly: Hours per day x 260 [52 weeks x 5 days per week] divided by 24 [two periods per month] Monthly: Hours per day x 260 [52 weeks x 5 days per week] divided by 12 [one period per month]
Description. Hourly and biweekly rates of pay for most Federal civilian employees are computed as required by 5 U.S.C. 5504(b). Hourly rates of basic pay are computed by dividing an employee's annual rate of basic pay by 2,087 hours.
1938: Congress passed the Fair Labor Standards Act, which required employers to pay overtime to all employees who worked more than 44 hours a week. They amended the act two years later to reduce the work week to 40 hours. 1940: The 40-hour work week became U.S. law.
Even the 60-hour workweek, once the path to the top, is now practically considered part-time, as a recent Fortune magazine article put it. Our data reveal that 62% of high-earning individuals work more than 50 hours a week, 35% work more than 60 hours a week, and 10% work more than 80 hours a week.

The goal is to subtract the starting time from the ending time under the correct conditions. If the times are not already in 24-hour time, convert them to 24-hour time. AM hours are the same in both 12-hour and 24-hour time. For PM hours, add 12 to the number to convert it to 24-hour time.
