Do your job well because your remuneration depends on it

Monday October 30, 2023

Theme: “Do your job well because your remuneration depends on it Text: Leviticus 19:13

13. You shall not oppress your neighbor, nor take anything by violence. You will not withhold the mercenary's salary until the next day.

Let's remember:

Salary is the payment for work agreed between an employee and his employer under the employment contract. To calculate the gross salary, you must: determine the gross hourly remuneration (indicated on your contract), determine the number of hours worked in the week or month, multiply these two figures to obtain the gross monthly base salary. Let's note the difference between a gross salary and remuneration: the gross salary is essentially the financial compensation for the work performed. Remuneration, for its part, includes all amounts relating to the performance of business tasks (bonuses, emoluments, percentages, tips, benefits in kind, compensation, etc.). Regarding work, it takes into account: the list of missions entrusted; the responsibilities of the position; the objectives and expected results; details of the skills and authorizations sought... According to the specifications agreed before starting work, the employee must deliver the goods without defects and within the prescribed deadlines. When both parties are in agreement, remuneration should be done without problem. Thus, the employee must do his job well for the employer to grant the remuneration. Our biblical text then requires the employer not to defraud his employee. He must not play the game of salary retention and manipulation. The Lord disapproves of this way of doing things because a job well done deserves remuneration. Do not knowingly delay or defer pay. No violence towards employees. Honesty, gratitude, dedication, recognition of a job well done, and love of God and neighbor are required of the employer. Let us know that the worker deserves his salary. God, the greatest employer, always pays us in proportion to our work coupled with our love of a job well done. Have a great Monday. Amen Alain Louz.-
