Overtime Calculated At Wrong Rate

2 offices serving Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan & New Jersey

Are you being shorted earnings due to your overtime pay being calculated at the wrong rate?

Overtime pay should be calculated at one and one half times an employee’s “regular rate of pay”. The regular rate of pay needs to include things such as commissions, shift differentials and non discretionary bonuses.

For a bonus to be of the discretionary type and thus excludable from the calculation of overtime, an employer must retain discretion both as to the fact of payment and as to the amount until a time quite close to the end of the period for which the bonus is paid.  The bonus sum, if any, to be paid must be determined by the employer without prior promises or agreement, to be considered non-discretionary.

Many employers pay overtime at the wrong rate, thus underpaying their employees. For example, if your employer pays you overtime but fail to include in the calculation non-discretionary bonuses or commissions you received, your likely owed money.
