I have been working for my employer since August 2011, so 2 years and 1 month in total
Hi Jenny, what do you mean exactly by being "penalised"? thanks
Yes, a lot. The cancellation will have the following effects:
1. my target will increase, so I will have to give back commissions because these are paid proportionally to my targets
2. my targets will increase a lot, so it will be difficult to achieve them by the end of the year; this is unfair because I am going to have the highest targets in my team
3. the fact that I won't achieve my targets will have effect on my career progression because only the super-achievers are promoted in my company
4. on top of this, I will have to give back more than £6K to my company because of a special bonus put at the end of Q2 2013: the company already paid me this special bonus but now they want it back because of the cancellation
