Default Salary Questions Canada

Folks,

if someone could answer the following salary questions I'd be most
grateful:

- Are salaries negoiated with employer gross yearly?
- Are salaries payable monthly or weekly?
- What is deducted from your salary (meaning: what ends up being
transfered to your bank account)?
- If the employer doesn't pay social security and tax (from your
salary), how is it done?
- what's the tax rate?

Alternatively, please advise which web page to visit!


Thanks,

Default salary questions

Usually bigger companies do not negotiate salaries. They have fixed salary schemes based on the position and level. When I got my last job I was asked how much I wanted and I was surprised to be offered a higher amount. Salaries are usually paid every second week, however I know people that get paid weekly. As far as the deductions are concerned, I will read-off from my pay slip:

-Federal Income Tax
-Quebec Income Tax
-QPP (Quebec Pension Plan) Employee Contribution
- EI Employee Premium
- Company Pension Contribution
I hope this helps

> Are salaries negoiated with employer gross yearly?

For professional positions, salaries are quoted as yearly, gross. For many non-professional positions, they are hourly, gross.

> Are salaries payable monthly or weekly?

Usually once every two weeks. Sometimes twice per month. Sometimes weekly.

> what's the tax rate?
