Everything you need to know to calculate bonus-related overtime
If you have a nondiscretionary bonus plan that is awarded to nonexempt employees at
intervals greater than each week (for example, on a quarterly, semiannual or annual
basis), you need to retroactively calculate the bonus into the employee's "regular rate"
of pay, and pay additional overtime and double-time wages to include the bonus
amount for each overtime and double-time hour worked.
But how do you go about this? Our exclusive guide explains, step by step, how to do the math for both incentive-based and non-incentive-based bonuses.
We provide all the calculations you need, using easy-to-follow examples, to make an otherwise complex and burdensome task a snap.
