O’Brien Law Firm files suit for unpaid quarterly bonus

On May 18, 2022, the O’Brien Law Firm filed suit in a Travis County court on behalf of a former employee of an Austin-based technology startup geared towards governmental entities. The employee was laid off, but the company failed to pay his promised bonus for the 4th Quarter of 2021. At first, the employee’s manager had told him that he would be paid his Q4 bonus. But, as often happens, once the employee is let go from the company, the company is motivated to pay them as little as possible. Here, the company refused to pay him the Q4 bonus that was promised.

Once the O’Brien Law Firm had reviewed and analyzed the client’s incentive compensation plan and the circumstances of his employment, the firm recognized that he was owed more than just the Q4 bonus, and asserted multiple claims in court against the company. Within a few weeks of filing suit, the parties resolved the dispute on confidential terms. That case was C-1-CV-22-001735, in Travis County Court-at-Law No. 1.
