A $2.4 Million bonus for a former Bae Benefit employee is being caught on tape, which the former employee has claimed was paid in “unrealistically large amounts” of money to his former employer.
The employee claims to have been offered the bonus in April of 2016 and was told he would get it back the next month, but it wasn’t until August that he received his check.
“I just got a check for $3.6 million,” the former BAE employee said in a video posted by TMZ on Monday.
“And I think it’s probably $2 million or something like that.
The checks were in different denominations.”
The video goes on to detail how the former staff member claims he was told to “keep my mouth shut” and was then “caught on tape.”
In the video, the former employees is heard saying he was then told to go back to his manager and talk to her about his situation.
“She’s like, ‘Well, you can do whatever you want to do.
It’s my company, you know, and they’re going to pay you whatever you get,'” the former member of Bae’s Bae Employees told TMZ.
“The manager was like, well, it’s up to you to keep your mouth shut.”
The former employee told TMZ he was shocked when he learned the company was paying out the bonuses to other employees, claiming he was never asked to give a specific reason for the bonus.
“My boss told me to go home and talk with my manager, and I was like okay, I’ll be back tomorrow.
But I never got that call,” the ex-employee told TMZ, claiming his boss called him in August.
“Her manager told me that they were going to send the checks to other people.
So, I got another check that was supposed to go to another person, and that’s when I got the second check.
She was like you can keep your mouths shut.”
When asked if he was fired or suspended for the bonuses, the employee told the outlet, “That’s my boss’s decision.”
The employee, who is currently unemployed, claims he received the $3 million in August, and is still waiting to see what his bonus will be.
The former Bees employees is a former employee of BAE who worked for the company from 2014 to 2016.
