Your contract rate should = the burden rate of an employee in the same position. What would you pay an employee? Take that hourly base pay for a direct employee and multiply that by 1.8 times and that will be your hourly contract base rate. Now an on-demand contractor costs you exactly the same as an employee, just less risk and commitment. The next slide explains burden rates in detail.
Employees are extremely expensive! The burden rate is the actual rate the employee costs the company and is the suggested rate that you should pay the contractor. 1.8 times base pay is the standard calculation. Formula = employee pay + the company match for Social Security, FICA, and Medicare, then add Vacation, PTO, Health Insurance, 401K, Uniforms, Tools, Software, Worker's Comp, Computers, etc. Employee Burden Rate = Hourly Contract Rate
