I left a company October 1,2015 and the incentive comp plan

Customer Question

I left a company October 1,2015 and the incentive comp plan states that employees who chose to leave before issuance of an incentive award check will forfeit the incentive award. However I did participate in 2 advance payments on my 2015 award in June & September. I live in California and the company is headquartered in Kansas, California being a right to work state do I have any entitlement to my 9 months of award compensation?

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you. While I can understand your logic, if your agreement says that incentive comp will be forfeited then that would control. The fact your employer may have made past exceptions would not render your agreement void. Therefore I don't see any legal basis for a legal action to compel payment. I am sorry. Please let me know if I can provide any further assistance.
