I work in a big company(well known) here in the philippines and since 2008 they unilaterally stopped giving year end bonuses which they usually give aside from the 13th month pay that they provide to supervisors and rank and file employees.
The bonus that they gave before 2008 vary from as little as Php4000 across the board to as high as 75% of the basic salary of every employees. However, starting 2008 they just unilaterally stopped giving the said bonuses citing low operating income as an alibi (managers are still receiving annual incentive bonus worth hundreds of thousand of pesos but not the supervisors and rank and file employees).
My question is would this already be a classic case of diminution of benefits? If it is can we still sue the company this year (2013)for not giving this bonus from 2008 to 2013 to the supervisors and rank and file employees?
thank you so much for any advise that you can give.
