Pay and Bonus Disputes

Bonuses are often a significant feature in an employee’s renumeration package, so experiencing issues with payment of your bonus can have a considerable impact on your earnings and leave you feeling frustrated and confused. Even if your bonuses are said to be ‘discretionary’, you still have rights.

If you have been denied your bonus that you rightfully believed you were owed, or have been paid significantly less than expected, your employer may be in breach of your employment contract.

We have a long and successful track record of helping senior employees receive what they legitimately expected to receive, including in the context of long-term incentive plans and other deferred remuneration schemes. If you work in financial services, we can also advise you on the regulatory aspects of your bonuses and remuneration.

Pay and bonus disputes can be complex, and problems can often arise as a result of other factors such as discrimination. For example, if you are a female senior executive working in financial or professional services, you may be being paid less than your male colleagues who undertake similar work. We can investigate the details of your position and remuneration with your employer and where possible 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.

We know it can be demoralising and financially detrimental to not be paid what you are entitled to. By engaging our team, we will ensure you receive what you deserve.
