Hi, I have received my wageslip and in the top line is a £200 bonus. A week before, I was sent £140 cash 'Christmas Bonus' in the post, which was both unusual and unprecedented. At the bottom of my wageslip, I have had £140 deducted as a 'Cash Advance'. Could anyone explain this practice, as I have not seen it before and am worried by not querying it (my company are known for disposing of 'trouble makers'), I may be seen as complicit. We have over 100 employees and our department was not paid a bonus last year.
