http://stats.bls.gov/newsrels.htm * Employer Costs for Employee Compensation measures the average cost per employee hour worked that employers pay for wages and salaries and benefits.

Wages and salaries are defined as the hourly straight-time wage rate. For workers not paid on an hourly basis, straight-time earnings are divided by the hours worked. Straight-time wage and salary rates are total earnings before payroll deductions and include production bonuses, incentive pay, commissions, and cost-of-living allowances. Not included in straight-time earnings are nonproduction bonuses, such as lump-sum payments provided in place of wage increases, shift differentials, and premium pay for overtime and weekend work; these payments are included in the benefits component.

Benefits include: paid leave--vacations, holidays, sick leave, and other leave; supplemental pay--premium pay for work in addition to the regular work schedule (such as overtime, weekends, and holidays), shift differentials, nonproduction bonuses, and lump sum payments provided in place of wage increases; insurance--life, health, short-term disability, and long-term disability; retirement and savings--defined benefit and defined contribution plans; legally required benefits--Social Security, Federal and State unemployment insurance, and workers' compensation; and other benefits--severance pay and supplemental unemployment benefits.

Employer Costs for Employee Compensation include data from both private industry and State and local government. Not included are the self- employed and farm, household, and Federal government workers. Survey data are published annually with the payroll period that includes March 12 as the reference period.
