A year-end bonus (sometimes called a Christmas bonus) is a reward paid to an employee during the Holiday season. In many companies, it’s tied to performance metrics, and the amount can vary depending on whether certain milestones are met. Year-end bonuses are usually made up of lump-sum payments used to acknowledge the individual for hard work and dedication. Compared to the recipient’s salary, these monetary encouragements can be quite substantial. Or as we are about to learn, a real spit in the face.
I guess I wouldn’t surprise anyone if I said bosses can be really cheap. But some of them are such scrooges, they see every dollar that goes into employee motivation and retention budgets as losses. So when the opportunity arises, these tight-a**es pay themselves back and leave everyone else with just the crumbs. Continue scrolling to check out the worst Holiday bonuses we could find. Let them serve as a reminder that staff always have to be treated with respect. Screw those who forget that.
