Customer Question

If you earn additional incentive type monies while you're employed, but the company pays out months after it's been earned and when they end up paying you're no longer employed; are they breaking the law in CA?

Thank you for your follow-up.

Absolutely not. Some bonuses or incentives are based on certain goals and benchmarks that can only be calculated in the future. If that is when the payment could be calculated and provided, it is not in violation of state or federal employment. It would actually be a violation if the employer withheld the earnings which where earned under contract, and then failed to provide them to the former employee.

Good luck.
