Unless otherwise set by written employment contract, it would be a blended rate based on hours worked at each rate. To oversimplify (because I am a lawyer, not an accountant): say the rates are $12.00 for role A and $16.00 for role B. Say you worked 1,500 hours at role A and 500 hours at role B during the year. Pay was 1,500 x $12 = $18,000 plus 500 x $16 = $8,000, or $26,000 for 2,000 hours. The average blended rate would be 26,000/2,000, or $13.00 per hour.
