LINEE - Bonus pay for international executives
For many international executives bonuses form a significant part of their overall employment package. If your contract is governed by UK law or if your employment has a sufficient connection with the UK, you may be able to deal with any dispute arising in relation to your bonus in the UK.
Guaranteed or Discretionary Bonus?
Bonus schemes are either guaranteed under contract or discretionary. Many schemes are a mixture of both, which means that while you have the right to be considered for a bonus, the employer has the final say as to whether to pay out or not.
