In my job I get a handsome bonus periodically. Few months ago my Supervisor filled an incorrect performance rating that he corrected as soon I demonstrated to him it was his mistake. While he recognized
that to be mistake, he said I forget the bonus as that money is now gone. Few days back I learnt that my job is now eliminated and I have to file unemployment. I requested him that at least he should give me the bonus that I had earned earlier, but he now says that he only changed my performance as courtesy and not necessity and I should be thankful that I can collect unemployment with no opposition from employer.
I get a feeling this is not fair. It would take me some time to find new job so I dont want to cause a problem with this former employer in my ability to collect unemployment. Is this not violation of compensation law or erisa or something like that?
