Retro Earnings Definition

Term Definition
Earnings paid to an employee “after the fact” for wages that should have been paid in a prior paycheck.

Extended Definition
Essentially, retro earnings are funds paid to employees after they’ve completed work or another compensation agreement has been made, dating back to a specific time. Retro earnings are most common with salary or hourly wage raises that take place retroactively or when union deals are made to retroactively provide bonuses, payment adjustments, etc.
