매월 1회 이상 정기적으로 지급되지 않는 임금(상여금 등)
② wage which is paid for the non-contractual working hours
( such as extended work allowance, holiday work allowance, etc)
소정근로시간에 대하여 지급되지 않는 임금(연장근로수당 등)
③ Allowances paid for an employee's living support or welfare
생활보조 또는 복리후생적으로 지급되는 수당 등 (meal cost, etc)

2. How to calculate the monthly salary based on the hourly pay:
월급의 시급 환산법

40-hour work week ⇒ wages regularly paid a month for contractual working hours
÷ 209 hours
주40시간제⇒ 계산된 입금(소정근로시간에 대한 매월 정기적 임금) ÷ 209시간
44-hour work week ⇒ wages regularly paid a month forcontracutal working hours
÷ 226 hours
주44시간제⇒ 계산된 임금(소정근로시간에 대한 매월 정기적 임금) ÷ 226시간
