    If you got laid off on 10/10, like I did, the last pay stub only had one week’s pay. Therefore, the number of hours should be halved, e.g., 37.5 for me. Otherwise people will be looking at an hourly rate 1/2 of what it should be.

    Otherwise, that spreadsheet is totally awesome!

    You are correct – I looked closer at my last paycheck – which was for one week as well – and there is a “rate” at the far left which is basically your full two week pay rate.

    Also, I noticed the vacation balance on my final pay check stub is the same as the previous stub’s balance, which means they didn’t calculate an accrual for the last week of regular work (for those of us laid off on 10/10). It’s only a few more hours, but it is easy to calculate, and we should be entitled to it.
