Bonus And Commission Claims
There is also the question of whether the payment of the bonus and commission is guaranteed or discretionary. Where an employer has a bonus scheme with open rules or entitlement to a bonus is set out in the contract it is relatively easy to pursue any sums due in court. In this situation, if the employee has been dismissed, the usual main bone of contention is whether they were dismissed for ‘cause'. However, there can also be problems with the trustees of any scheme and the fact the scheme may be subject to a different jurisdiction.
