  • OVP is the Overtime Percentage (%)
  • OT is the total overtime time (hrs)
  • TT is the total work time (hrs)

To calculate the Overtime Percentage, divide the total overtime work by the overall work time, then multiply by 100.

The following steps outline how to calculate the Overtime Percentage.

  1. First, determine the total overtime time (hrs). 
  2. Next, determine the total work time (hrs). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = OVP = OT / TT * 100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Overtime Percentage.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
