For the purposes of subparagraphs a to c of the first paragraph, a specified employer’s adjusted reduction rate in respect of wages paid or deemed to be paid in the period described in any of those subparagraphs is equal to the percentage determined in respect of the employer under subparagraph 2 of subparagraph i or i.1 of subparagraph a of the second paragraph of section 34, as the case may be, in respect of the wages, if the employer’s total payroll for the year 2018 is no more than $1,000,000, and, in any other case, to the percentage determined by the formula

In the formula in the second paragraph,
(a)  A is, in respect of wages paid or deemed to be paid in the period referred to in the second paragraph, the percentage determined in respect of the specified employer under subparagraph ii or ii.1 of subparagraph a of the second paragraph of section 34, as the case may be, in respect of the wages; and

If the percentage determined by the formula in the second paragraph has more than two decimal places, only the first two decimal digits are retained and the second is increased by one unit if the third is greater than 4.
