So if you were earned compensation in 2004 that was contractually paid over several years, you shouldn’t get paid what you are owed?
Aren’t some of these retired employees contractually owed their retirements, too?
If the company isn’t making money, no. I should not be compensated when the company is not making money
Of course, I would never defer a bonus in the first place. If a “performance bonus” or “profit bonus” was deserved in the first place....it would not have been deferred. Obviously they really didnt deserve the 2004 bonus if it had to be deferred
