Under Florida law, if your employer does not pay you your earned commissions, you may be able to recover up to triple your unpaid commissions, plus attorneys’ fees and costs.In most cases, the Fair Labor Standards Act requires earned commissions to be factored into your regular hourly rate for the purpose of calculating overtime pay. If you earn commissions and work more than 40 hours per week, you may be entitled to a higher overtime rate than 1.5 times your regular 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.
