  • Hourly wage question Arizona

    Funny enough, when I joined this board I was like so many other rookies...big headed, arrogant and sure I knew it all...boy was I wrong...While I know a good amount...there is a lot to learn.

    Here goes...

    I have an employee that recently received a $2 an hour raise...he is now asking for another he worth it? Yes.

    Problem...this employee is friends with the owner (who is frustrated with the employee/friend)

    This along with his duties give him a lot of opportunity to come and go...some weeks he works 20 hours...some 40...often in between.

    We were thinking of doing this...if he works 40 hours a week, he will be eligible for a bonus that equals the amount of his new raise...if he works less than 40, then there is no bonus...

    Thoughts? Legalities?
    Not everything in America is actionable in a court of law. Please remember that attorneys are in business for profit, and they get paid regardless of whether or not you win or lose.

    I offer my knowledge and experience at no charge, I admit that I am NOT infallible, I am wrong sometimes, hopefully another responder will correct me if that is the case with the answer above, regardless, it is your responsibility to verify any and all information provided.

    If he works overtime in any of those weeks, you'll have to recalculate his overtime rate, because this is a nondiscretionary bonus, IMHO.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
