Re: resign vs bonus

1) Boss verbal said bonus 2008 will give when Jan 2009. If I tender resignation on 24th Dec 2008, is it entitle that bonus in labour law?

2) In appoinment letter, i need to give 1 month notice in lie for resign. So, if i still got 21 days annual leave and i tender on 24th Dec 2008, should i leave earlier than 1 month?

1. There is no law pertaining to bonus payment. Since you know bonus will be paid in Jan, why not resign after collecting your bonus. It is quite likely you are not going to get your bonus if you resign before the payment.

2. You may apply for your balance of leave before you go.

1) Thanks for the 1st question. Fyi, i cann't tender after bonus, because i need further study & register in 12/Jan/08.

2) Need to check, in labour law, can i use my annual leave days as notice in lieu to resign? Example: i tender in 01/01/08; suppose i need work till 30/01/08, but i request leave on 09/01/08 and use 21 days anual leave to replace balance days.

Thanks for your kindly assist.

The point is whether bonus payment is contractual. If it is not contractual, your boss can decide whether to pay or not to pay even you are still working there at that time not to mention you have tendered your resignation. Once he has received your resignation letter, quite likely he is not going to pay you. There is nothing much you can do about it if he doesn't pay you. Your timing is very unfortunate.
