Loved the new piece, Dan! I called one of those outcomes "rotten equity" in a September 2010 article here entitled "New Words for Old Issues".

"Rotten equity: Delivering fair or equitable treatment so late and obviously unwillingly that any positive motivational opportunity has been spoiled and converted into negative resentment by the recipient. A rotten hiring bonus is paid six months after hire; a rotten relocation expense reimbursement is made a year after you took out a loan to pay your overdue moving bill supposedly covered by your employer."

Thanks for elaborating on the dysfunctional practices we so often encounter in real life.
