His contract reflected that. When it came time to pay him the bonus he was told the State of Arizona deemed that MOS no longer warrants a bonus. Does he have any recourse?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: He was told when he was slotted for the MOS (job) it had a bonus but by the time he signed his contract the state had changed their policy. This occurred within days. The paperwork was submitted and he was told he would have his bonus within 2 days. When he didn't receive the funds he called the National Guard Admin Office and was told it was rejected.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I'm not sure what you mean?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: that's all
