Wells Fargo told employees they will receive a cash payment of $1,000 if they made less than $75,000 last year, perhaps in response to a potential union formation at the bank. The bonus is limited to United States based employees.
Additionally, Bank of America will allegedly provide restricted bonuses for a total of $800 million to its staff. The internal memo by CEO Brian Moynihan was seen by Bloomberg.
In contrast to Wells Fargo, any employee with less than $500,000 in salary is eligible for the payment.
Larger banks have faced some scrutiny due to perceived Mega bonuses for already highly compensated employees compared with mainline workers.
The news last week could be in response to consultants recommending a fresh approach to bonus compensation structures.
