Piece Rates

Published December 11, 2018 Author: Andrew Felix Rose

Payment given to an employee at a fixed rate for each item they produce or complete. For example, the number of fruit picked at an orchard, or the amount of clothing produced in a manufacturing plant.

Employees paid on a piece rate are still entitled to at least the minimum hourly wage. Even if the employee falls short of the piece rate quota, the employer must still pay the minimum hourly wage or salary.
