Many industry professionals depend on a professional bonus at the end of the year as a portion of their compensation. When a dispute arises over a bonus, an employee may be left without recourse or feel frustrated. Due to a breach of contract or performance issue, an employer may feel no obligation to pay out a bonus. At Lax & Neville LLP, we have extensive experience representing the interests of employees as well as employers facing bonus disputes.
Bonus disputes can involve significant amounts and represent a significant portion of income or of company profits. We are experienced in representing employers and employees in professional bonus disputes cases.

Securities, Financial Industry, And Professional Bonus Disputes
Securities industry professionals primarily work on a "salary plus bonus" total compensation package, where the bonus constitutes a significant percentage of that professional's annual compensation. To lose that bonus is to forfeit the benefit of many months of work.
If you have been deprived of a bonus, or want to challenge a decision made regarding your bonus, contact the securities, employment and investment law attorneys of Lax & Neville LLP. We have significant experience and success in the recovery of bonus disputes for employees. Call now at 212-696-1999 for a free consultation on possible strategies regarding bonus dispute resolution. We are experienced in bonus disputes cases involving:

- Research Analysts
- Financial Analysts
Bonus Disputes After Resignation Or Termination
When securities industry professionals leave a particular job, bonus disputes often arise. Leaving a job for whatever reason before bonuses are paid creates a situation in which the employer has a strong incentive not to pay the bonus, even if the employee has legally or legitimately earned it.
Even if an employee has voluntarily left, or was dismissed for cause before the time of the issuance of annual bonuses, our firm can help resolve any dispute that may arise. In addition, we will examine whether discrimination played a part in the reduction of a bonus and, if needed, assist you in obtaining a Form U-5 expungement. We are experienced in both litigation and arbitration or dispute resolution related to bonus agreements.
