La PORTE — The La Porte County Council has approved $4,000 bonuses for full-time county employees, but they will be disbursed in four installments over two years rather than in a lump sum as employees hoped.

During a special meeting Tuesday, the council approved – by a 4-3 vote – paying bonuses to all full-time employees in four installments every six months – $1,000 each this month, and in June 2022, December 2022 and June 2023.

Why refer to it as a bonus if you are going to spread the pay out over two years? That's just appears as a raise payable in two years.

A bonus is giving as a gift of reward for well done job and to be enjoyed as a lump some payment, so that you can reward yourself ; vacation, new car or down payment on new house, etc. !!!
