In the financial industry, employees are often paid by salary and with a year-end bonus. These bonuses may be referred to as incentive compensation and, in many cases, comprise a significant portion of an employee’s compensation for the year. Where an employee has been denied this bonus or offered a substantially reduced bonus for whatever reason, or terminated shortly before a bonus is to be paid, he or she may need the assistance of a competent employment law attorney.
Levin Law represents securities industry professionals, private bankers, hedge fund managers, analysts, and private equity executives in resolving these disputes through private negotiation, arbitration, or litigation. Our Los Angeles financial and banking industry employment attorneys are knowledgeable regarding the inner workings of this industry. We offer responsive and aggressive legal assistance that is backed by more than a decade of successfully resolving financial industry-related legal matters.
Generally, most financial industry firms dispense year-end bonuses in the first few months of the following year. In some cases, if an employee is forced to resign, is laid off, or is terminated shortly before the bonus is supposed to be paid, the employer may fail to pay the employee the money that he or she is owed.
