I got a better job offer in another city, and I have to move there by starting of next month, which is 01/02/2023. On the other hand, my current employer announced the bonus date will be paid by 19/01/2023.
If I give my 2 weeks' notice on 17th January, 31st January will be my last working day. I am not sure if it's expected that I will still get this bonus. My main concern is that I'm relying on this bonus for my relocation expenses.
How do I handle this appropriately?
I was talking to one of my friends and he mentioned that HRs usually process the payment by the 16th, so it will be fine if I can give the notice by end of the 17th as they usually don't revert the payment once made.
