Commission & Bonus Disputes
Salespeople on commission work hard to achieve their sales goals. In return, they expect their employers to honor their promise to pay commissions. But for various reasons, some companies fail to pay all of the commission fees owed to their sales forces. When a salesperson works solely on a commission basis, it becomes even more urgent for the salesperson to receive those commissions.
If you have not received the commissions you are owed, it may be time to engage the services of an attorney. This may be the only way you can obtain the money you deserve.

Aggressive Representation In Commission Dispute Cases
Generally speaking, California law considers compensation paid as a percentage of the value of goods or services as commission wages. Commission wages can also be paid on a flat fee per unit sale basis. The courts will carefully examine these and other facts to determine how to proceed.
Our law firm has been representing employees in all types of employment law and wage disputes since 1999. We are thoroughly versed in wage and hour laws and how to present compelling cases to the court. We will work hard to build a strong and effective case for you.
California courts do not necessarily treat bonus disputes in the same way as commission disputes. A bonus may or may not be considered a commission in the eyes of the law. This is because a bonus is paid at the discretion of the employer or because it could be based in whole or in part on factors other than the performance of the salesperson. In truth though, many bonus plans are similar to commission pay plans, and thus payment is mandatory. An attorney at our firm can review your situation and advise you of your options.
