EXAMPLE:

Using the assumptions stated above for an employee earning $50,000 per year and takes 10 VRW days.

  No VRW With VRW  
CPP $88.53 $84.56  
EI $31.92 $30.59  
Tax $315.33 $294.46  
Total $435.78 $409.61 -$26.17


Change in Statutory Deductions   -$26.17
VRW Reduction   $80.13
Net Pay Impact   $53.96
  Rounded to $54.00

In the chart above, look at the point where $50,000 salary and 10 VRW days meet.
The value is $54 .
