Did you ever wonder why your bonus
was so low (or non-existent), when you thought
you and/or your department were doing so well?
Have you ever wondered what you could do about it?
Employers are prohibited from deducting from
any hourly employee’s wages/bonuses
any cash shortages, breakage or loss of equipment
unless it can be shown that the loss was caused
by a dishonest/willful act or gross negligence
of that employee. Moreover, in many situations, employers cannot reduce a bonus for reasons outside of the employee's control. Clearly, this case puts
all bonus plans under the microscope and has
made the validity of such plans one of today’s
hottest legal issues.
Determining whether a particular bonus plan
is legal may not be obvious to the average
citizen, yet it is important to know
your rights. Get informed!
The legal system is set up to “level
the playing field” and give workers
the power to correct workplace abuses. Scott
Cole & Associates has served California’s
workforce for many years as one of
the state’s most respected workers’
rights law firms and has recovered massive and record-setting
settlements for employees for workplace abuses.
