You may have heard about the changes in U.S. tax legislation, and the resulting plans from various companies to use the new laws to give something back to their employees. If you haven’t heard about it, and you happen to work at Home Depot, you have a pleasant surprise coming your way. After Boeing, Starbucks, Walmart, and AT&T announced their intention to pay higher wages, salaries, and bonuses, Home Depot has joined the gang and is set to do the same. Every U.S Home Depot employee will receive a one-off bonus of between $200 and $1000, depending on the length of service.
What could you spend an extra few hundred dollars on? You probably have a list as long as your arm, with the total far exceeding the size of any bonus you’re likely to get, but it could be time to start whittling those ideas down to a shortlist. Having recognized that the changing values of the U.S retail industry mean that it’s more important than ever to invest in great employees and give them a strong incentive to both work hard and stick around, Home Depot will be paying bonuses of:
$200 for employees with less than 2 years’ service $250 if you’ve worked there for between 2 and 4 years $300 to those with between 5 and 9 years’ service $400 for 10 to 14 years working with the company $750 for all employees with 15-19 years under their belt $1000 for 20, or more, years in Home Depot employment
While the bonuses are a one-time-only offer, Home Depot has stated that they intend to continue investing in their workforce in the future, with more information to be announced by the end of the month.
Home Depot employees may have some good news in store, and yet more to come, but working life isn’t always a positive experience. At The Rager Law Firm, we have extensive experience in helping people facing all manner of workplace issues, whether that involves discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, or an Equal Pay Act violation. In fact, bonus time can lead to some of the negatives as well as the positives.
