Can a manager offer an employee the choice between a time-off award and another type of award?

We would not recommend it. Giving employees the choice between different types of awards could have significant tax consequences. Employee choice usually involves the concept of constructive receipt. For more information on this issue see our document, Tax Issues for Awards or contact the IRS.
