Your Rights as an Employee Earning Commission
Unfortunately, many employees are unfamiliar with their rights in the workplace. Because of that, employers are quick to take advantage of their lack of information. However, you have rights in the workplace. Some of your rights as an employee on commission are listed below:
- Commissions must be paid at least 2 times each month.
- Commissions must be paid within the first pay period after the commission was earned (if it allows a reasonable amount of time to make calculations).
- Commissions are due immediately after termination.
- Commissions are due immediately after an employee quits (given that the employee gives at least a 72-hour notice).
- If commissions are not paid on the date they are due, normal wages accumulate for up to 30 days. These wages will also be due to the employee.
If your employer has continuously deprived you of the commissions that you earned, you might have grounds to pursue a claim and receive compensation. For more information about your right to resort to legal action to recover the commission that you rightfully earned, do not hesitate to contact California Labor Law Employment Attorneys Group at your earliest convenience.
Filing a Complaint for Unpaid Commissions
If your commissions were withheld, you could file a claim with California’s Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE). Doing so consists of the following:
- Preparing the claim
- Gathering essential documents
- Locating and visiting your local DLSE office to file the claim
- Attending the settlement conference
- Waiting for and attending the hearing
- Reviewing the decision
- Appealing the decision (if necessary)
Pursuing a claim through the DLSE is usually recommended for smaller claims. However, it is not your only option. You also have the right to pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer.
Your Right to Pursue a Civil Lawsuit
Civil lawsuits are recommended when claims are complex or involve significant amounts of money. If you are interested in pursuing a civil lawsuit, you must seek legal assistance as soon as possible with knowledgeable employment attorneys. To prepare for your lawsuit, you must do all of the following:
- Have important documents relating to the commission that you are owed, including pay stubs and bank statements, for example.
- Have important documents relating to the agreement between you and your employer in terms of your commission.
- Contact an experienced lawyer to handle your claim.
If your employer knowingly withheld the commissions that you rightfully earned, you have the right to sue. Your employer broke the law by failing to pay you your commissions; therefore, you must take action to hold him or her accountable for the commissions that are owed to you. If you would like to start the process of pursuing a civil lawsuit for unpaid commissions against your employer, do not hesitate to contact California Labor Law Employment Attorneys Group at your earliest convenience.
