Standard Labor Rate

    Standard Labor Rate is estimated cost per direct labor hour. It includes all costs associated with direct labor wages, taxes paid per each employee along with fringe benefits. Usually Standard Labor Rate is equal to Average Wage Rate per hour that is computed by the formula below:

    Standard Labor Rate per direct labor hour = Average Wage Rate = Average Wage rate per direct labor hour + Average Employment Taxes + Average Fringe Benefits

    Average Wage Rate per direct labor hour = Total hourly wages /Number of all employees

    Average employment Taxes per direct labor hour = Total employment taxes of all employees / Number of employees

    Average fringe benefits per direct labor hour = Total fringe benefits of all employees / Number of employees

    For example, if average employee’s wage rate per hour of work is $15 USD, average employment taxes are $1.5 USD and average fringe benefits are $4.5 USD, Standard Labor Rate per direct labor hour is calculated as:

    Standard Labor Rate = $15 USD + $1.5 USD + $4.5 USD = 21 USD 

    Standard Labor Rate is billed irrespective of position and experience level of employees. It is used to simplify the use of standard costs. Standard Labor Rate can significantly vary from Actual Labor Rate that is determined by employer.

    Standard and Actual Labor Rates help calculate Direct Labor Rate Variance which shows whether the employer underpaid or overpaid to direct labor employee.
