My husband is working for a manufacturing as a Sales Officer. Recently, the Management released a memo stating that absences of beyond 2 days a month will result to non-release of their incentive. He's been a consistent quota achiever and thus he has been regularly receiving monthly incentives for this.
Last October, our 2 kids was hospitalized. One of which was serious that our Barangay Rescue even helped in bringing our kid to the hospital because he has a heart condition. Because of this he decided to take a leave of absence to be with our kid. His leave was approved by his Area Manager and Sales Director.
Come November, his incentive for his October (quota achievement) was not released due to his absence for the month of October. He rquested thru his Sales Director to reconsider this since his case was emergency in nature. However, the Finance dept. disapproved the request. He got information that the original plan was really to forfeit the benefit instead of just delaying it.
Then this December, when it was supposed to be released, the said incentive is still not yet released as promised. His Sales Director is helping him out with this. But the final say really is the Finance person.
If this incentive is really forfeited can it be considered as a Non-Diminution of Benefits? He's been receiving monthly incentives for almost 2 years now until the recent incident. The only month his incentive was not released was that for December because of the said memo.
Hope to get your soonest inputs on this.
