    Will I get basic salary if I donít achieve target in any one month?

    I work as salesman in Amway. We have target to achieve and based on that we get incentives. Till now I am doing very well and handsomely paid the incentives. I want to know supposing if I am not able to reach the target in a month, will I at least get the basic salary. How will I come to know about this? Please suggest.

    If you could not active target in a month you will get basis salary or not depences upon the appointment terms and conditions. If nothing is mention in the appointment letter then it will be based on the policy of the company.

    Some companies gives basis salary even if you did not attain the target and some company gives basis salary only if you attain target.
    There is no labour law or any court judgment that even if the target is not reached you are liable for basis salary. Some companies gives basis salary even if you don't attain target for the first month and in the nest month onwards you will not get basis salary if you don't attain target.

    In you company if you want to know about this you have to go to the HR and ask about the same and I am sure that he will surely help you.

    As far as I know the Amway company do not give basis salary if you don't attain target.

    As you are saying that there is target to achieve incentive your poor performance may harm your incentives only however, it is based on your terms and condition mentioned on your appointment letter. Most of the organisations provide the basic salary to all employess even if they do not perform well during the month and you are also eligible to get basic salary. You can talk to your boss regardin this and you can also check your appointment letter once again and ask with HR regarding the same.

    Thanks.

    Dear..

    In our salary some part of it is fixed and some are variable. A fixed salary is a salary that will be paid to the employee in each and every condition. where as the variable salary usually depend upon the performance, Post and amount and place of work and it varies from person to person.

    No company can stop your basic salary because it is your fixed salary as target is a thing that can not be achieved every time due to various reason and that does not mean that the company will recover it from our salary, But if you do not perform well then you have to loose your variable salary like incentive, Bonus, and expenses.

    Hope it will help

    Cheers...!!!

  3. Does the increment takes place on total salary amount or on basic salary only?
