Unpaid Commissions Attorney

Some employers withhold compensation and unpaid sales commissions from their employees ignoring the laws already established, which protect workers in Los Angeles from such illegal conduct. Employers should pay their employees during the course of their employment according to their business regulations and taking into consideration how employment laws handle unpaid commissions or any other pay-related dispute.

Oftentimes, salespeople are missing commissions from sales they made. Employers who owe employees these commissions are violating both federal and state employment laws and should be held responsible for their actions. The best way to seek compensation for your hard work and unpaid wage situation is hiring legal representation from a Los Angeles unpaid commissions attorney.

Claims we handle in Los Angeles

Some unpaid sales commissions claims we have successfully handled in the past include:

  • When an employee closes a deal and was not compensated accordingly.
  • When the person coordinating the project, arranging meetings, and handling most aspects of the project is informed that it was a team project, therefore, he or she will not be paid commission.
  • When employers withhold commissions or bonuses specified in the contract.

If your employer is at fault for withholding compensation from you, several laws in California can protect you. It’s important you hire a Los Angeles unpaid commissions attorney and never sign a contract that waves your rights to sales commissions. You can pursue a claim in court and with the DLSE.

Remember commissions are your pay. They are a percentage of the price for a service or product sold and you are legally entitled to such compensation as stated in your contract or written commission agreement. Employers in California are required to provide such agreements and include how commissions are calculated. You can contact your attorney if you have not been provided with a written commission agreement and would like to find out about your rights under these circumstances.

Keeping records

If you suspect your commissions are not being paid accordingly, you should start keeping record of important information such as the amount of sales you have closed, dates, and percentage of commissions you are suppose to receive on each specific sale. You should also specify the amount of work you did and any other details that may benefit your case. This information is crucial when deciding the amount of commission that should be calculated in your favor.
