From the Department of Labor (DOL):

Opinion Letter on FLSA and bonuses: The Department of Labor issued an opinion letter on “whether the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires an employer to include a nondiscretionary bonus that is a fixed percentage of straight-time wages received over multiple workweeks in the calculation of the employees’ regular rate of pay at the end of each workweek—and if not, whether the employer may, when paying the bonus, recalculate the regular rate for each workweek of the bonus period by averaging the bonus earnings across the workweeks.” Read the letter here.
