Home Depot Inc.
(HD) - Get Report is the latest corporation to reward its employees with a one-time bonus or added benefits thanks to the $1.25 trillion U.S. tax bill that was passed late last year.
Home Depot's hourly employees in the U.S. will receive up to $1,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. Home Depot said the bonuses, in addition to a net tax expense of about $150 million, will negatively impact its full-year diluted earnings by 19 cents a share.
