Malaysia has a standard way of calculating daily rate of pay - titled the Ordinary Rate of Pay (ORP). This involves using a standardised 26-day ruling for calculation of a 'Regular Day' rate of pay per month for an employee.

Daily rate of pay for a monthly-rated employee is calculated using the formula below:

  • Regular Days Rate of pay = Employee's Monthly Rate of pay / 26 days
