Verbal promise of bonus not being paid.

I'm the General Manager of a Restaurant Franchise. I was hired with the verbal promise of a annual bonus of 3 percent. The owner has not upheld his agreement. I have contacted old general managers and they had the same problem with compensation. I have also learned that he is having legal problems with other companies for non payment. Could you give me any advice in protecting myself and getting the funds I was promised.

bonus payment

An oral promise of a bonus is enforceable under NC law. The evidence that you can put together to prove the terms of the promise will determine whether you can be successful.
You may call my paralegal at 828.0363 for an appointment to discuss the matter further.
