What is the Christmas bonus?
The supplementary annual salary is regulated in the Labor Contract Law 20,744 in arts. 121 and 122 (text modified by Law 27,073). In them, the calculation method and the payment dates are established.
Regarding the first point, it is established that 50% of the highest monthly remuneration accrued for all concepts is calculated, in the semesters ending in June and December.
When is the Christmas bonus collected?
Regarding the payment terms, it establishes two dates: June 30 for the first installment and December 18 for the second.
They are fixed expiration dates and the guidelines of art. 128 payment terms, which distinguish between expiration period and payment period, enabling for monthly and biweekly remunerations a payment period of up to 4 business days after the expiration of the term.
It is not the case of the supplementary annual salary that has a fixed date established and therefore the maximum limit for its payment.
Any payment that is not made in advance or on the established dates violates current legislation.
There is in all cases a “grace” period of four days.
Do retirees collect the Christmas bonus?
The payment of the bonus for retirees in December is established in the middle of the month: it must be paid on the 18th, which this year falls on Saturday.
Aguinaldo: Do the beneficiaries of AUH, AUE and SUAF charge it?
