I quit my job. gave 2 weeks notice.Didn't have to work it. Does he have to pay me 2 weeks?
I had it with my boss. He offered me a different position 6 months ago, and is not happy with my work. He know I feel I was doing pretty well considering that I was not properly trained. I quit; I said, "I am giving you my two weeks notice." He did not want me to quit. He said I still belong there. He said, "I don't care about the two weeks, I'll pay you for the two weeks." He said to go home and think about what I'd like to do at work. I said something like how I did not like the atmosphere anymore, and that I wanted to leave. He paid me for my last two weeks (hourly pay)I worked. BUT...He did not pay me the commission I earned...and he also did not pay me for my two weeks notice...that I would've worked. Do I have any recourse?

No....you are even lucky you are not working those two weeks and still getting paid......just relax..take the two weeks off..
( try to find another job within those two weeks) if you dont find anything just tell him you will be coming back...take it as a vacation with pay..

thats what i would do.

Regardless of what he verbalized, he is legally liable for the hours worked and any commission earned.

commission payment depends on company policy - you may or may not be entitled to it - what does the policy say?

You only have recourse for the unpaid commission. Since you didn't work the last two weeks, you are not owed any pay. Even if he "said" not to work them. It will come down to he said, you said. Be sure you also get paid for any vacation time you have acrued and not used, they HAVE to pay you for that. You can contact your local attorney general for information on how to file a claim with them to get your comission and vacation time paid for.

I don't think so, If you did not work, he does not have to pay you.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

If you don't have it in writing, then good luck to you. He is under no legal obligation (aside from verbal contract which you would be hard pressed to prove) to pay you for any hours that you did not actually work.

You need an attorney now. I worked at a hotel and damaged one of their vehicles and my manager told me they would be deducting money from my check. I went and got a lawyer who put in a call to my former manager and in 5 minutes a resolution....."You can pick up your check tomorrow." I paid her $50 of her $200 per hour time and I was on my way.

Today I use a service that gives me unlimited access to Attorneys. That $50 I paid her pays for 2 months access to 40 attorneys for my whole family and all of my legal issues.....my how times are a changing.

You may want to look into it for yourself if you can't afford $200 per hour.

You might want to check with your State offices, or even the human resource office at your work.

I use to work at a local TV station in town and my boss left and went to another station - our competitor. She called me and wanted to bring me over with her. So I gave my 2 weeks but the manager just told me to pack up and leave at that moment - he was mad that I had decided to move over with my old boss.

A couple of days later I realized that since I did give my two weeks notice that I was entitled to be paid for the time. I received a check a week later for the two weeks.

So I would look into it.

Good Luck and I hope you find something that you are happy doing.
