Bonus 2023... What happens if you resign or are fired?, this is what PROFEDET said

The payment of the 2023 bonus is approaching and with it some doubts arise among the workers.

One of them is about the year you quit your job or were fired.

Workers have the right to receive a bonus, which is equivalent to at least 15 days’ salary and must receive it before December 20 of each year, in accordance with article 87 of the Federal Labor Law (LFT).

But if someone gets fired or resigns, do they get it? This is what the Labor Defense Attorney’s Office (Profedet) said.

There are a series of people who do not receive a bonus at the end of the year, among which are workers based on payment and the beneficiaries of deceased employees, although in the latter case it is if they do not have a testamentary document or a decision on a teaching trial.

ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE RETIRED OR CALLED ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE A BONUS?

Profedet confirmed that people who resigned or were fired were entitled to receive a bonus. In the case of people who permanently separated from their position before December 20, “they have the right to be covered by the proportional part of the bonus during the time they worked,” the agency said.

People who were fired before the delivery of the bonus should also receive a proportional share of it, according to Profedet.

Once they receive a fixed salary, the benefit is calculated per day of work; while if your salary is variable, it should be an average earned in the last working days.

The agency also reminded the workers that they cannot give their bonus, “the employer, in any case, can argue with the company’s economic difficulties or lack of income to not pay it or reduce its amount.” In the same way, they also do not receive payment in kind.

In the case of people who request maternity or paternity leave, the employer does not have the right to deduct those days from the bonus. Paternity and maternity should be considered “time actually worked”, as established by Profedet.

HOW LONG WILL YOUR BONUS LONG IF YOU DON’T RECEIVE IT?

Starting December 21, workers have a whole year to claim payment of their bonus or appeal to any authority to receive legal advice, as in the case of Profedet.
