, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Are the bonus criteria laid down anywhere in writing?Please note I am in tribunal today so may not be able to respond immediately but will do so this afternoon asap, thanks
, no the bonus criteria was not written everywhere, it was all explained verbally to me
*Anywhere not everywhere
Thanks patience. The key here would be what was agreed at the time with your employer and if you had then gone on to work on that basis and generate sales, etc in order to try and achieve the bonus in question. So if you were promised a specific bonus, based on specific criteria, then used that to increase your performance and to try and generate the bonus in question, then there would be an implied duty employer to satisfy the bonus, even if they got the criteria wrong in the first place.
In terms of pursuing this further you have a couple of options:
Just note that however you decide to take this further, you are not protected against unfair dismissal until you have 2 years’ service with the employer. This means they can easily dismiss you if they see you as a problem over this matter and you can’t challenge it. You could still pursue the money you believe you are due but it could cost you your job so bear that in mind.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
Yes this clarifies my position, thank you
you are welcome, all the best
