Is your employer denying you a bonus that you feel you are entitled to? Or does the amount of your bonus payment not reflect your performance or value to your employer?

Our team of employment professionals can assess the terms surrounding your bonus and quickly establish if your bonus is fair.

Many employers mistakenly believe that where a bonus is expressed to be “discretionary” they have complete control over the amounts they award. This is rarely the case. Express and implied terms in employment contracts, and the employer’s own custom and practice, will have an impact on how an employer can act.

Bonus payments can make up a large proportion of an employee’s remuneration, and in certain professions it can be the principal share of a remuneration package. We understand the importance of bonus payments and will help you to ensure that your bonus is fair and reasonable.

You may be able to challenge the decision not to award a bonus or the amount awarded if your employer has failed to exercise its discretion in the correct manner. You are entitled to question your employers’ decision and may want to consider the following:

  • relevant performance factors
  • your performance and appraisal
  • your department’s or your company’s performance
  • whether similarly performing employees have been awarded a bonus and how much they have been awarded
  • custom and practice

The key steps in any bonus dispute are critically reviewing your contract of employment and discussing your employer’s past and current actions. We will determine whether and when a bonus should be paid and the action that you can take if your employer fails to act fairly.

Our expert employment team have years of experience in this complex area and can help you to address your concerns.

Please get in touch with us straight away if you may have a dispute over a bonus.  We can offer legal advice.  Time limits can be short so we recommend taking formal advice as soon as possible.
