Re: Can employers withhold bonus payments from staff?

I don't agree. The company will have accrued money to pay the bonus. If Y is part of the labor contract, then the employee would be entitled regardless the company results (assuming the employer has acknowledged the performance rating of the employee).
I worked in a company with such a policy. X had been zero for a few years, so they decoupled X from Y to help motivate hard-working people even if the market wasn't responding.
