Getting the PA bonus paid out even though you quit?

Is there any way of getting PA to pay out the parts of the bonus that you "have earned so far" during a year if you quit?

Is there anything you can negotiate with, like staying longer than your mandatory 2 months, if PA is really short of staff at the moment?

Has anyone heard of anything like that?

No, and I can't imagine any circumstance where the firm (or any employer) would agree to make such an exceptional agreement. Your best option is to resign immediately after the bonus is paid, having engineered it so that you have maximum leave remaining and you're on the bench. That way, you can probably get a very short or nil notice period.

No chance, the rules are clear and I can’t think of a single company who would pay a part-annual bonus that wasn’t planned.

On the “staying on” point, you don’t really have much bargaining power there as of course UK law permits your employer to refuse your resignation and make you stay if you’re doing something important, though of course that never really happen it does mean you have no real negotiation.

"UK law permits your employer to refuse your resignation and make you stay if you’re doing something important"

Where do you people come up with crap like this?

If you are on a fixed-term contract without a notice provision, your employer can sue you if you walk out before you have finished your fixed term. Obviously, if there is a break / notice clause in the contract, you simply have to follow that.

For permanent employment, your terms and conditions should spell out the minimum notice you must give. No firm can force you to work beyond your agreed notice period as specified in your employment contract.

It may feel like it sometimes, but last I checked we'd outlawed slavery.

VI's right. A notice period is part of the contract. All it means is that you can't unilaterally decide to leave earlier or later. If you're in the middle of an important project, at most the employer can insist that you continue working through the whole of the notice period. Equally, your employer would have to agree to a longer than usual notice period - they'd normally start the notice period from the day you give intention to quit. As an aside, I wouldn't recommend staying longer than your mandatory notice period as it will just become uncomfortable - people will be waiting for you to go and be unclear about your intentions if you're still hanging around.
