A bonus is an additional payment apart from salary given to employees with the intention to energize them. The Statutory Bonus came into existence with the approval of the Payment of Bonus Act in 1965 by the Government. According to this act, certain establishments had to pay an amount to their employees based on their profitability each year. This amount was to be over and above their basic salaries. The purpose of the act was to enable employees to partake in the profits of their respective companies. The bonus, when applicable, also gives employees an opportunity to earn more than the minimum wages.
Recently, the government approved amendments to the Bonus Act, 1965 raising the limit for calculations of bonuses. More so, it has also made this act applicable from April 1st, 2014. This implies a “retrospective effect”, which is an added liability for employers. Establishments will now have to pay the unpaid bonus for the previous 2 financial years as well. For HR folks, this also means a little baffle in configuring what their company’s statutory liability is.

Yearly performance appraisals are critical. An employee performance appraisal is a process—often combining both written and oral elements—whereby managers/peers or sometimes subordinates of an employee evaluates and provides feedback on his/her job performance, including steps to improve or redirect activities as needed. A performance review is incredibly valuable for both employee and employer to learn more about what is and isn’t working, identifying areas for growth and planning for the future.
While the term performance appraisal has different meaning for different business owners, TalentOz takes into consideration that any performance reviews is sticking with the following traits. They are as follows:
As more organizations are now slowly changing their performance reviews approach and include more parameters in their process to make it humane. TalentOz happily introducing a new feature called “Recommendation” in the performance module from this version

Also, in the settings page itself, whether they want the recommendation section can opt for Position change / Grade change for the employees. Or in this process they can simply evaluate the employee performance by asking questions.
The questions which are going to be asked in the section can be of two types. a) Option b) Text Input. For options questions which are created can assigned with values. For input type of question, the owners can provide their inputs/feedback in a text field. They can add n number of questions for this process. Once they configure the questions, the options to enable like Grade/Position are set. Then the process owners will see the recommendation with the configured details.
