Unpaid Commissions and Bonuses Are a Labor Law Violation

Sales and service employees work hard for commissions, which are often paid (or supposed to be paid) according to a set agreement. Unfortunately, some employers don’t pay commissions as agreed, even hiding information about the sales made, including the number of sales or other requirements of the sale required for commission payments. Scott & Winters Law Firm has experience bringing individual and class actions for unpaid commissions under Ohio law.

If your employer is refusing to pay commissions based on your written agreement or playing hide the ball with the information needed to calculate commissions, you deserve legal help to secure unpaid wages.

Additionally, there are times when employees could have a claim for unpaid bonuses. This is particularly true for bonuses that have been written into an employment contract or made through a verbal agreement and then gone unpaid. Unpaid bonuses can also mean any cash bonuses with respect to vested options that have gone unpaid. For example, there are times when bonuses require that a person be employed through a certain eligibility date to receive it. If that eligibility date comes and goes, and the bonus has not been paid, this could represent a wage and hour violation.

Will You Be Able to Recover Compensation for These Unpaid Losses?

If it can be proven that you have not been paid proper compensation for a commission or agreed-upon bonus, it is very likely that you will be able to recover the money you are entitled to. At Scott & Winters Law Firm, our team has experience analyzing employment contracts to understand the specifics behind Commission agreements and bonuses. Our goal is to make sure that you recover the compensation you are entitled to based on your employment contract. We will also work to help ensure that you receive any interest on unpaid wages that has accrued.
