Steps to estimate total hours worked by all employees for 2018:

 

Step 1:
Determine the number of full-time employees at your establishment.
Example:
Of Acme's 33 employees in 2018, 28 were full-time.
Step 2:
Determine the number of hours generally worked by a full-time employee for a year. Multiply the number of full-time employees you calculated in step 1 by this number. This total number of full-time hours worked should exclude vacation, sick leave, holidays, and any other non-work time.
Example:
Each of Acme's 28 full-time employees worked an average of 2,000 hours per year after excluding vacation, sick leave, holidays, and other non-work time. This works out to 40 hours per week for 50 weeks of the year.

       28 full-time employees
X 2,000 hours per year
 56,000 total full-time hours
Step 3:
Determine the number of hours of overtime worked by your full-time employees.

Determine the number of regular hours worked by your non-full-time employees. (Non-full-time employees include part-time, seasonal, and temporary employees.)

Add these numbers to the number you calculated in step 2 above. This is the estimated number of hours worked by all of your employees - full-time and non-full-time - during 2018. Write this number in Section 1, question 3 on the previous page.
Example:
Acme's 28 full-time employees worked a total of 2,800 hours of overtime during 2018 and 56,000 regular hours. Acme's 5 part-time employees worked a total of 2,715 hours during 2018.

 56,000 full-time hours from step 2
   2,800 over time hours
+ 2,715 part-time hours
 61,515 total hours worked
