Unsocial hours premiums are payable to nurses/midwives as follows.
Sunday Time + Time (double time) in respect of every hour worked.
Night Duty Time + ¼ + Time in respect of each hour rostered night duty.
How to calculate Time x 2 (double time)
Divide annual salary by 52.18 = weekly rate
Divide weekly rate by 37.5 = hourly rate
Multiply hourly rate by 2 = Time x 2
If annual salary is equal to €51,783
a) Divide €51,783 by 52.18 = €992.39
b) Divide €992.39 by 37.5 = €26.46
c) Multiply €26.46 by 2 = €52.92
