Indirect labor

Indirect labor refers to the work of factory employees that has no physical association with the finished product, or for which it is impractical to trace costs to the goods produced.

Examples include wages of maintenance people, time-keepers, and supervisors. Like indirect materials, companies classify indirect labor as manufacturing overhead.
