Am I guaranteed the full amount of a bonus if it was a verbal agreement?

Greenville, SC |

My employer offered to pay me a $3k bonus for leading employee training. The employer said he did not want the bonus to get heavily taxed for me so I was to be paid $500 a month for 6 months. I have received half of the bonus and now the employer is not paying me the rest. When a new employee was hired the employer decided to let the new hire start leading some of the training sessions. This was never discussed with me and to my knowledge I am still responsible for employee training. The bonus offer was never in writing, but just a verbal agreement between the employer and me.
