Calculating # of days off per year for household employees

| Private Reply
Hola,
I’m confused re the formula one uses to come up with # of days off each year I am responsible for paying my empleada.

I am pretty sure it’s 14 days-but just WHAT constitutes a “day”?

For example: she works one “day”(5hrs) a week at $400 pesos.

If that “day” is considered a DAY- then I would owe her $400 x 14 =$5600 pesos!

I am fair in regards to paying employees, but that seems VERY HIGH.

Is their a formula? E.G. take the 400 and divide by 7 to get a daily rate for a week? If I do that, rounding off, a “day” comes out to about $60 pesos. $60 x 14 = $840.

Would really appreciate some help on this. I want to do the right thing(and then some...)!

Muchisimas gracias,

YoDave
