Labor burden is what an employee actually costs an employer aside from the wage they earn. The labor burden refers to the additional expenses the employer will pay for the employee like the payroll taxes, workers comp, health insurance, paid time off, etc. The labor burden is calculated to a percentage that can be added to the employee's wage. This will allow you to view your overall labor cost for each employee. Please see your tax advisor to get an accurate labor burden percentage.
