Any one out there have experience fighting the retention bonus payback? Specifically with the A.G. Edwards, Wachovia, Wells Fargo contract? I understand there are several class action law suits moving ahead but with other firms. Any accountants/tax experts looking at the fact that the bonus money is taxed in the year you receive and then you pay back the loan over time if you remain at the firm, so how is this income? If you leave the firm you are required to pay back the remaining amount, again how is this income when you have to pay it back?Given the original contract was signed with Wachovia the assumption was or at least the presentation from the company was that the company culture would remain relatively the same, this seems like a gross misrepresentation given the sale to WF and the subsequent payout reductions, letters to clients telling them to take it or leave it regarding the new charges to their accounts, and the work environment becoming increasingly hostile. Anyone gone to arbitration on this?
