The differences between salary and wages
What is the difference of the salary from the salary? The most important difference between them is the calculation of one parameter based on another. That is, there is the basic salary of each particular position according to the staffing and the salary is calculated on the basis of this index and all allowances and deductions, which are regulated by law in Russia.
The amount of salary immediately recorded in the documents, once a person gets a job, the salary is calculated after a month of work in organizations (or other previously agreed period) or in case of dismissal.
The amount of salary is fixed and reflected in the staffing of the organization. Salary is calculated based on the amount of salary. On the other hand, the wage does not affect pay.
Thus, the salary, and the salary is remuneration for work. But, the salary is constant and fixed, and the salary is variable and depends on many factors: the qualifications, experience, working conditions, quality of work and so on. Sometimes the amount of salary and wages are the same, but in most cases, salary is only part of the salary (sometimes ½ of the salary and even less).
