Definition of Salary

Definition of Salary

A salary is a payment for work that has been done, which is based on a fixed yearly or monthly rate.

Salaries are usually paid weekly or monthly.

For example, Jacob receives an annual salary of \(\$60,000\), which is paid monthly. This means that he receives \(\$5,000\) a month before tax and other deductions.

Workers who are paid salaries are not usually paid for overtime work, but they receive other benefits such as paid annual leave and sick leave.


The aim of this dictionary is to provide definitions to common mathematical terms. Students learn a new math skill every week at school, sometimes just before they start a new skill, if they want to look at what a specific term means, this is where this dictionary will become handy and a go-to guide for a student.
