Employer Tax Costs in United States

Employers in the United States are required to make social contributions of 10-15% for each employee’s salary.

Employee Income Taxes in United States

Employees in the United States are taxed between 10% and 37% depending on their income bracket. Employees also make social security contributions totalling 13.65%.

Employee Probation in United States

Formal probationary periods are not common in the United States because employers can ordinarily terminate employment without cause at any time, without notice or severance obligation.

Employee Overtime in United States

In the US, employees typically work 40 hours per week. Eligible employees are paid overtime (one and half times their regular rate of pay) for all hours over 40 in a workweek or, in some states, if they work more than 8 or 12 hours in a single workday. In some states, employees are also entitled to overtime for work performed on the seventh consecutive day of work. And, in California, employees who work more than 12 hours in a day, or who work more than 8 hours on a seventh consecutive day of work, are entitled to double their regular rate of pay.

Employee Notice in United States

Employees are employed ‘at will’ and employers are not legally mandated to provide them with a formal notice period for termination. Therefore, either party can terminate the employment relationship with no notice, provided it is not for an unlawful reason. However, some employment agreements can specify a notice period.

Termination in United States

Severance pay is not legally mandated in the US and is typically a matter of agreement between an employer and an employee. When agreed upon, it can be included in employment contracts. Some employers choose to offer severance pay based on the employee’s length of service.
