    Accrued Bonus: An accrued bonus is a bonus that is contingent on performance. An employer determines whether or not to offer an accrued bonus to an employee. Accruing a bonus is a tough decision to make. You cannot predict an employee's future performance.

    Accrued Time Off Balance: An accrual is a scheduled automatic addition to your time off balance. For example, your Vacation policy could specify that you accrue 1 day on the first day of each month. A reset is a scheduled reset of your balance.

    Adjusted Deduction: Adjustment is a settlement, allowance, or deduction made on a debt or claim that has been objected to by a debtor or creditor in order to establish an equitable arrangement between the parties. For tax returns, an IRS-approved change to tax liability is considered an adjustment.

    Commissions: Commissions are a form of variable-pay remuneration for services rendered or products sold. Commissions are a common way to motivate and reward salespeople. Commissions can also be designed to encourage specific sales behaviors.

    Expense Reimbursement: Expense reimbursement is a method for paying employees back when they spend their own money on business-related expenses. These expenses generally occur when an employee is traveling for business but can occur in other work-related situations. (www.thebalancecareers.com)

    Form W-2: Form W-2 is an Internal Revenue Service tax form used in the United States to report wages paid to employees and the taxes withheld from them. Employers must complete a Form W-2 for each employee to whom they pay a salary, wage, or other compensation as part of the employment relationship. - Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/)

    Impounded Earnings: Payroll Tax Impounding is when your payroll tax liabilities are automatically deducted for each paycheck. Your payroll provider will then submit your tax payments to the appropriate government entity when they are due.

    Involuntary Termination: An involuntary termination, for purposes of Section 409A, means a severance of the employment relationship due to the employer's independent exercise of the unilateral authority where the employee was willing and able to continue performing services.

    Severance Pay: An amount paid to an employee upon dismissal or discharge from employment. Severance pay is usually given by an employer to its employees who are laid off or terminated for reasons other than firing-for-cause. ... In general, severance pay is up to the employer's discretion and is only legally required under specific circumstances.

    Voluntary Termination: Voluntary termination may refer to a variety of actions, but most commonly, it refers to an employee's decision to leave a job on their own accord. It differs from a layoff or a firing, in which the decision to end employment was made by the employer or another party, rather than the employee.
