What is Indirect Labor?

Indirect Labor describes employees in a manufacturing company who are not directly involved with the production of goods. Therefore, they are not considered direct labor.

Janitorial Staff, Mechanics, and loading dock workers are all examples of indirect labor under management accounting. Even if they handle products produced by a manufacturer, their wages are not to be calculated into product costs.
