If your employer fails to pay you bonuses that were agreed to and earned, you can pursue a claim in court for unpaid wages plus attorneys’ fees and costs under Florida law.The Fair Labor Standards Act requires certain kinds of bonuses to be factored into your regular hourly rate for the purpose of calculating overtime pay. If you earn bonuses and work more than 40 hours per week, you may be entitled to a higher overtime rate than 1.5 times your regular hourly rate. If your employer fails to pay you the proper overtime rate, you can recover up to double the unpaid overtime, going back up to three years, plus attorneys’ fees and costs.
