Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

Can you explain what you mean when you say that you "earned" these bonuses? Did you have a contract that required payment? I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.

All Managers that worked for the whole year are due to be paid a year end bonus.
Expert:  Patrick, Esq. replied 7 months ago.

Thank you very much for my reply, but I don't think it quite answers my question. Did you have a contract that required payment of a bonus in a specific amount? What do you mean when you say that managers "are due" the bonus?
