    I have been very fortunate in the past to have received generous tips from most of my clients at Christmas. I want to share this with my helper, but I want to be fair. Do you guys pay "bonuses" at Christmas? How much is fair?

    it would depend on how long the employee has been with your company. the first year they are there i give them $100, then every year after it would raise by $100 dollars. the peak would be $500 dollars. but in my experiance i have never had a worker reach the $200 dollar bonus.

    I have one who has made %00 for the past few years. One year (on a stupid bet) he made 1000. He is worth every penny.

    Treat your employees good and they will want to come back to work for you in the spring, Most of our commercial and residential people get xmas card too. Never enough P.R.
