Year 2020 is a leap year. You’ll have 2 extra working days but the same number of weekends & holidays. 😉 Yeah, that’s not fun! A leap year means more work (well, atleast in 2020).
- Mondays = 52
- Tuesdays = 52
- Wednesdays = 53
- Thursdays = 53
- Fridays = 52
- Saturdays = 52
- Sundays = 52
Total Days: 366
Secondly, if you are paid bi-weekly, check if you are going to have 27 paychecks or 26? If 27 paychecks, will you make more money on your W2 than your negotiated salary or will you see a drop in your paychecks in 2020?
The payroll and income scenario doesn’t impact you if you are a contractor and you get paid hourly.
Also, just because 2020 is a leap year, this doesn’t mean, everyone’s payroll will have 26 vs. 27 paychecks dilemma. But, some of you will do.
This happens every 11 years! Talk about Fun Facts!
