At my last job before retiring, for the 18 years I was there we budgeted for a Holiday Bonus each year as it had been a long-standing practice. Each employee received the same amount regardless of level of compensation, a deliberate choice reflecting the intent to proportionately benefit lower paid staff more than higher paid ones. Management decided on the size of the bonus; and the Board approved the entire budget. Every few years a board member would ask about the Holiday Bonus (good to know some board members actually looked at budget details) but there was never a vote against it.
Neither the auditors nor the IRS ever raised a question about this practice. And, I should report, the staff was always quite appreciative.
