Is an employee entitled to be paid bonus for the period during which he is laid off and is paid layoff compensation?
According to section 14 of the Act an employee shall be deemed to have worked on the days on which he has been laid off. During the period of lay-off he is paid lay-off compensation which is not excluded from the purview of the definition of wages under the Act. He is therefore entitled to be paid bonus for the period.
