Total. perhaps you need a flow chart to deduct the time hes actually working on that particular project as opposed to others at the same time. For example. Have him track his hours hes playing solitaire on the computer to the Evans project. The time hes buying or browsing ebay, to the Miller project. All the hours on Facebook or twittering, The Jones project. Get the picture?Do i deduct a portion of his salary from the project. Or the total amount im paying him while the project runs.
