HOW ARE EMPLOYEE BONUSES TYPICALLY TREATED IN AN ASSET PURCHASE?

I'm close to wrapping up my first asset purchase of a business and the issue of employee bonuses came up. Since the business is transitioning mid-year, how are employee bonuses typically handled? Is this typically prorated in part to Seller or is the whole bonus obligation on me as the buyer?

This isn't a big line item that I'm worried about but I'd appreciate hearing from others more experienced in the matter. Thank you!
