75 Guaranteed week allowance First let us clarify a point. 5 per cent loss of production, costs or anything else. 11 per cent. 5 per cent. Some schools of thought add it to the basic wage costs only, since that is all that is paid for the guaranteed weekly wage. Others add it to gross wage, as that is the cost to be recouped. It does however, depend on how the percentage has been arrived at in the first place. If the cost of the guaranteed weekly wage is recorded for each trading year or even individual contract, then it will be expressed as a percentage overhead of some fixed sum.

The bottom line for the estimator is who pays this benefit. The answer is quite simply the employer. The amount paid can vary considerably, but most standard calculations allow five sick days per year. This could be taken as a continuous period of eight days or as five separate periods of four days (3 days without and one day with sick pay ± 20 days sick in all). Either way the cost to the employer is the same and would be calculated as follows. 5 working weeks in the year. 37 per week. With 39 productive hours per week this does not produce a large sum to add to the all-in hourly rate, but it is significant enough not to be ignored.

Estimating the cost of labour It is important that the estimator gets the cost of labour correct; it is a major component of practically every bill rate. Having said that, it is equally important not to be bogged down in a plethora of unwarranted detail in the calculation of that cost.
