The calculation of extra night it's simpler than it looks and with online calculators it's even easier to do it. It is important to know how to do this to have control and notion of the correct values ​​to be paid by you or for you.

It should be remembered that the extra night for hourly follows the same rules as the extra nightly for monthly. Before we go into the calculation itself, we need to clarify a few points.

## What is nighttime extra?

It is a value added to the salary of the worker who performs activities in the night period. Urban workers receive at least 20% more on the value / hour, compared to what is earned in the traditional daytime period.

In the field, the percentage of nightlife is 25%.

This increase is fair because night work is considered more tiring and exhausting. The normal time is 60 minutes. The night time, according to the law, is calculated to be 52 minutes and 30 seconds.

This way, the journey of 8 hours is reduced to 7 and everything that goes beyond this becomes extra hours. So if the employee is working overtime at this time, you also need to receive the extra extra amount (at least 50%) next to extra night.

It is worth remembering that the extra night is made considering the basic salary of its category and not its gross remuneration.

## Who can receive the nightly surcharge?

All workers who perform their activities in the period considered nocturnal, that is, between 22 hours of one day and 5 hours of the other.

For rural workers, the period is different: 21 hours from one day to 5 hours from the other. For livestock activities it is between 20 hours and 4 hours the next day.

It is important to stress that the extra night is due to hourly workers, as well as for monthly workers.

## How to calculate the nightly surcharge?

You need to divide the Monthly Base Salary by the Contract Hours and then multiply the Normal Time by the Additional Night (which is, as already mentioned, at least 20%).

Then add this percentage to the normal time value and multiply this result by the number of Night Hours worked in the month. Here are two examples:

### Example 1:

An employee receives R\$ 700,00 as a monthly base salary. She works 220 hours per month, but only 180 hours are nocturnal, that is, between 22 and 05h (urban worker). The calculation will work like this:

Step - Find the amount you earn per daytime worked:

R\$ 700,00 (monthly salary) ÷ 220h (contractual hours) = 3,1818 (value per daytime)

Step - Find the amount earned per nightly hours worked:

R\$ 3,18 (value per daytime) x 20% (percentage of the nightly surcharge) = 0,63 (value of night time)

In this way, we reach the amount that is earned the most for each night worked hour.

Step - Find out the total amount that is gained from nightly surcharges in one month:

R\$ 3,81 (0,63 + 3,18 = value per night time) x 180 (number of night hours worked in a month) = 685,80

Thus, the total nightly surcharge to be added to the employee's salary at the end of the month is R\$ 685,80.

### Example 2:

An employee works for 200 hours contract and receives R\$ 1500,00 as a monthly base salary. In addition, he performed activities in the 50 hours. This is an urban worker.

Step - Find the amount you earn per daytime worked:

R\$ 1500,00 (monthly salary) ÷ 200h (contractual hours) = 7,50 (value per daytime)

Step - Find the value you get by night time worked:

7,50 (value per daytime) x 20% (percentage of the nightly surcharge) = 1,50 (value of night time)

Step - To discover the total value that is gained from extra night In a month:

R\$ 9,00 (7,50 + 1,50 = value per night time) x 50 (number of night hours worked in a month) = 450,00

Thus, he will receive R\$ 450,00 nightly surcharge at the end of the month.

### Example 3:

Urban employee who works 200 hours and has as basic salary R\$ 980,00. Realized 40 hours activity in the night period in which they were also extra hours.

Step - Find the amount you earn per daytime worked:

R\$ 980,00 (monthly salary) ÷ 200h (contractual hours) = 4,90 (value per daytime)

Step - Find the value you get by night time 50% because it is also extra hour:

4,90 (value per daytime) x 70% (percentage of extra night + overtime) = 3,43 (value of night time plus extra hour)

Step - To discover the total value that is gained from extra night In a month:

R\$ 8,33 (4,90 + 3,43 = value per night time) x 40 (number of night hours worked in a month) = 333,20

Thus, he will receive R\$ 333,20 nightly surcharge at the end of the month.

See how simple it is? Now you can do the calculation without mystery.

1. Professor Bruno,
In the 3 example, the percentage of 70% (20% of the nighttime surcharge + 50% overtime) was set. The correct one would not be 80%?
The extra 50% overtime is applied to the night time (normal time with the additional 20%), that is, 1,20 x 1,50 = 1,80 (80%).

Another question: When you say "Did 40 hours of activity at night time", these 40 hours are actually worked hours or 35 hours were worked at night time and 40 hours were computed for the calculations, considering the reduction of 12,5% (7min30s in 60min -> 7h nocturnal = 8h diurnal)?

Are the overtime and night hours extra calculated on the number of hours actually worked or hours equivalent to the daytime hours? Are the 22h 5h considered 7h or 8h for overtime and nighttime overhead?
