Employment Bonus Disputes

Bonus disputes are a common contractual claim that stem from the employment relationship.

If your employer fails to pay a guaranteed bonus then you may have a claim for a debt in the County or High Court.

More often than not the real battleground is when there is a contractual entitlement to a discretionary bonus. In such cases there is an implied duty on employers not to exercise that discretion irrationally or perversely. Here lies a common dispute.

There is also an overlap with discrimination claims as an employer must not award bonuses in a discriminatory matter.

If you want to discuss a pay or bonus dispute then please get in touch.
