    Not getting any bonus during notice period

    I am working in a private firm . I just gave my resignation and now have started serving my notice period a few days back.One thing that I canít get is that the employees who are in the notice period are not eligible to get any bonus like the regular employees. I donít think this fair. What to do in this case?

    Hi aspirant

    I think that the employees who are serving the notice period are just like the other employees and thus should be provided with everything that the other employees get. They should definitely get the bonus as the other employees get and should not be dealt with so unjustly. Your company is certainly doing the wrong thing and you should definitely raise your voice against it. Firstly you should check the policies of your company in this matter.

    Then when the policies are in your favour , you should go and speak with your manager. Tell him that according to the company's policies all the employees are eligible for getting the bonus even those serving the notice period. But you have been told otherwise. You hope that you will get your bonus during the notice period according to the company rules otherwise you may have to report this to the higher authorities.

    I am sure your manager will definitely accept your wishes and will not dare to withhold your bounus for the fear of being reported to the higher authorities. Good luck friend. Hope you get justice

    Hello Friend,
    There are different policies for employees who are in notice period than the usual ones and it differs from company to company.
    usually these cases seen in many cases
    1-they dont allow you take leave in notice period.and if you take in urgent cases then your notice period will be extended by those many days.
    2- they dont provide allowances and bonuses to the employees who are in notice period.
    3- some facility like free cab and meals may be taken away from them
    so these are different policies in different companies and you cant do much about it as you will be leaving soon.
    before you could bring some change you will be out of the company so if you can adjust then adjust.
    but these things are never mentioned in the offer letter so if you wish you can take legal action against them.but that is of no use because that will make your relationship bad with that company and in future you will face trouble if you again like to join that company.
    Thank you

    Dear Aspirant,

    In fact you are entitle to get bonus even during your notice period,if you have worked in the company during the last financial year.The bonus is paid for the last financial year in the next fiancial year.

    So see your position.If it is yes,you must get the bonus otherwise,you may contact the factory inspector in your location.The inspector will visit the comapny & make arrnagements to get you bonus.

    If you have worked for minimum 30 days in the previous financial year & if your salary is less than Rs.10000/month,you should definately get proportinate bonus.

    So see your position & go ahead.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..
