Hi Harvinder,

A salary structure, also known as a salary breakdown or compensation structure, outlines the various components that make up an employee's total compensation package. It typically includes both fixed and variable components. Keep in mind that specific policies can vary between companies, industries, and regions. Here's a general breakdown of a salary structure:

Base Salary:
This is the fixed component of the salary that employees receive on a regular basis, typically monthly. It forms the foundation of the overall compensation package.

Variable cash incentives that are usually linked to individual or organizational performance. Bonuses can be discretionary or based on predefined performance metrics.

Non-cash compensation, including health insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, retirement plans (like 401(k) contributions), life insurance, disability insurance, and other perks.

Additional amounts provided to employees for specific purposes. Common allowances include housing allowance, transportation allowance, and meal allowance.

Overtime Pay:
If applicable, the policy on compensating employees for working beyond regular working hours. This could be calculated as a percentage of the base salary.

For sales roles, commissions are often a percentage of sales revenue generated by the employee. This is a variable component tied directly to individual performance.

Stock Options/Equity:
If the company offers stock options or equity as part of the compensation package, the policy on the allocation, vesting schedule, and other relevant details should be outlined.

Performance Reviews and Salary Increases:
A policy detailing how and when performance reviews are conducted, and how salary increases are determined. This may include merit-based increases or cost-of-living adjustments.

Incentive Programs:
Details about any additional incentive programs, profit-sharing, or employee recognition programs that contribute to overall compensation.

Salary Deductions:
Any deductions from the salary, such as taxes, social security contributions, and other statutory deductions.

Leave Policies:
Paid time off (PTO) policies, including vacation days, sick leave, and any other types of leave that impact compensation.

Salary Structure Communication:
Guidelines on how the salary structure is communicated to employees, ensuring transparency and clarity.

It's crucial to regularly review and update the salary structure to stay competitive in the job market and align with the company's overall goals and financial health. Always ensure that the salary structure adheres to labour laws and regulations. Additionally, communication about the salary structure should be clear and accessible to all employees.
