Fellow monkeys, I am leaving banking after bonus payout. Part of the bonus is in deferred stock that doesn't vest immediately. So once I resign, I will lose that amount. Is it reasonable to ask my new employer to compensate me for that? The amount is not insignificant. I am leaving the U.S. and the offer letter did mention that they will pay me for "relocation expenses". We did not specifically discuss the deferred stock issue when I signed the contract.
