My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: California
Seeking information and what options to pursue regarding application of a performance based bonus plan.
Currently employed in a financial services company as director of internet marketing, my responsibilities are lead generation using online marketing, where leads are sent to the company’s sales department. My compensation plan involves a salary and performance based bonus plan. The bonus plan is triggered for new direct policy in excess of the monthly average over the last three years. All lead sources including, direct mail, existing policy holders, and referrals are included in the calculation for the bonus plan.
What is prompting this post is the company started a program, where leads are generated from a referral channel. This source is not included in my bonus calculation even though I was involved with the web site where leads are generated.
In addition to the above, the company had acquired an additional brokerage to handle those leads the parent company was not able to close (due to its underwriting standards) and sends those leads to its sister company.
My question is, am I eligible to receive bonuses for the sales in either the new program or sister company?
