Wage Act Solution
After reviewing Pauls' personnel records and the company's commission policy, we brought a claim under the Wage Act for unpaid commissions. Shortly after filing the complaint, we were able to negotiate a settlement that compensated Paul for the unpaid commissions.
If you rely on commissions as a significant part of your compensation, remember that once you have earned those commissions under whatever policy your employer has in place, those commissions are considered wages, and must be paid timely. This means they also must be paid at termination, even if the regular time for payout of commissions has not yet occurred.
