If you have not worked the entire period from July to December, the amount will be proportional to the months worked. That is, if the person worked only 1 month during that semester, he will not receive the full bonus, but rather 1/6 of the remuneration computed for the month worked.
No. As we warned, there are different factors that will influence the amount you receive. One of them is the size of the company. Small business workers will receive half of this benefit. However, the microenterprise staff, independent and informal, will not receive bonuses.
If the worker was fired, but worked during part of the semester, he or she will still have the right to receive the bonuses generated at the time of termination. The amount will be proportional to the complete months worked.
