Haven't gone through the code yet. But I think you will need to set the precision of cout .to attain that result.

cout.precision(2);
cout << "Base Pay .................. = " << basepay << endl;

Thank you for your time it really means alot!

this is my out put with cout.percision(2);

Welcome to the Employee Pay Center

Enter the employee name = Ryan
Enter the hours worked = 44
Enter his or her hourly wage = 3.33


Employee Name ............. = Ryan
Base Pay .................. = 1.3e+002
Hours in Overtime ......... = 4
Overtime Pay Amout......... = 20
Total Pay ................. = 1.5e+002
Press any key to continue . . .

Actually I think it's cout<< fixed << setprecision(2)
and make sure you include iomanip

cout.setf(ios::fixed);
cout.precision(2);
cout<< "Base Pay : "<<basepay

This would do the same. sorry didn't mention about Setf.
