Pay and Bonus Disputes
Senior executives have rights associated with the payment of “discretionary” bonuses and often have complex remuneration deals. Your employer’s (mis)use of its discretion can amount to a breach of your employment contract, which could give rise to a potential claim. If you have been denied your bonus or have been paid significantly less than expected, we can use the law to help you receive what you are entitled to.
We have a long track record in helping senior executives get paid what they legitimately expected to receive, including in the context of long-term incentive plans and other deferred remuneration schemes. We also have expertise in advising on regulatory matters with respect to bonus and remuneration arrangements in the financial services sector.
If you are a female senior executive working in financial or professional services, then the likelihood of you being paid less than your male colleagues doing similar work is high. We can interrogate the position with your employer and negotiate a back-pay deal or, if the loss will impact you significantly in the future, help you to bring a successful equal pay claim in the courts and tribunals.
