What happens with the Christmas bonus if I leave in November?

Hi folks,

It could be that my last month in my recent job in november is.
Do you know what would happen with the christmas bonus? I suppose I won't get it.


Thanks

Why don't you read your contract?

It depends.
If you're talking about 13th salary - which is in your contract, as Lib mentioned a pretty groovy piece of paper - you get x/12th of it.

If it is a Christmas bonus which is not paid out every year (or you have to sign every year that it is not a regular thing = no "Gewohnheitsrecht" applicable) it will depend on the goodwill of the employer.

I meant the one that is paid every year. This stuff is not leider in the 2 sheet contract.

If its 13th month you mean. You will get it, at least 11 of 12 months of it.

If there is some kind of yearly bonus, you will probably still get some depending on your contract. Often for a yearly bonus you will need to work from Jan to Oct to get something.

I expect you mean the 13th month though so you will be fine, just a fraction smaller as you havent done a full year
