How the Christmas bonus is calculated for domestic workers

The month of June contemplates the payment of the bonus and this includes employees and domestic workers. When calculating the amount of the Complementary Annual Salary that corresponds to household service, there are some mathematical formulas that allow to obtain the final number.

In the first of the cases, as it was said, it is enough with halve the best gross pay of the period.

when the person did not provide service during the entire semester, the bonus is calculated on half of the best salary, and that amount is multiplied by the months or days worked during those six months. In the event that the work is paid by the hour, the total remuneration of each month is added and the highest of the semester is taken to stipulate the half bonus.

There are two options to include the bonus in salary receipts: if paid on the last business day of the month, deadline established by the Labor Contract Law, can be included with the June or December salary and deliver the same proof of payment. If paid separately, an individual salary receipt can be delivered. It is important to remember that when calculating the best pay, extra payments must be taken into account either for overtime, additional (transportation expenses, for example) and remuneration in kind.
