Accrued Vacation and Bonus Pay May Be Deemed Unpaid Wages

Under Florida’s Labor Code, accrued but unused vacation and bonus pay is deemed “unpaid wages” and a court may award court costs and attorneys’ fees to a former employee who wins a lawsuit for unpaid wages. Further, an employer’s failure to pay final wages promptly by the next regular pay date may be deemed a violation of the FLSA.
