Last updated on June 16, 2020

California law regarding commissions is incredibly complex. Faced with these complicated laws, some workers who have unpaid commissions or bonuses decide to give up their cases entirely.

When Do Commissions Or Bonuses Count As Wages?

In California, you can file a wage and hour claim for outstanding commissions or bonuses. Wages or earnings are the amount the employer promises to pay an employee in exchange for that employee’s labor including, commissions and bonuses. If your employer failed to pay you a promised bonus or commission in exchange for work you performed, you may have a wage and hour claim for unpaid wages. If you have questions about your situation, including whether you have an actionable claim, contact JCL Law Firm, for a free initial consultation.

Do Commissions Or Bonuses Affect Overtime Pay?

In California, employers must calculate non-discretionary commissions and bonuses into your overtime rate of pay. If you work overtime and earn a commission or a bonus, that commission or bonus must be calculated into your overtime rate of pay. Often times, employers fail to do this which results in underpaying California employees for their overtime hours. If you earn a commission or a bonus and believe your employer is miscalculating your overtime rate, contact the JCL Law Firm, for a free consultation.
