What to do when you are not getting paid by employer?
As of April of this year I was laid off from a good paying job. I was eligible for unemployment after filing. However, I chose to take a lower paying job as a salesman for a new furniture store to get by, stay busy, not be bored and unemployed while I tried to find a better job. Anyways, when I was hired I was told I would be paid 10% commission on each sale, plus $8.00/hour base, and guaranteed 40 hours per week. Long story short, I've worked the entire month of may 40 hours each week, sold $35,000.00 worth of furniture, and was only paid approximately $750.00 for my hours from two pay periods. They only paid me for 71 hours in an 80 hour workweek. I never received my commission check, which I was told I would receive biweekly with each regular paycheck. I spoke to my immediate management about it, and they never give me a direct answer. Stating, oh don't worry about it, you'll get at the end of the month. Which turned out not to be true. I then talked to the corporate

sales manager, and he stated that I need to talk to a lady who handles the payroll at the corporate office. I keep getting evasive responses from immediate management, and I am not getting paid what I should not be getting paid. Should I just quit, because it is like beating a dead horse? I know I could file a complaint with the wage and hour division, but would it really be worthwhile? Yes, I understand some retail corporations are very greedy, and sleezy when it comes to paying their employees, and just use people as monkeys to make them money. Perhaps, I should not have been so trusting when I took the job, but I didn't know they were going to do this to me. Plus, I didn't want to be unemployed, considering the job market and economy right now. Would it be worthwhile to just walk away, if it doesn't get resolved considering what has already happened?

Make sure all that you have told us is well documented and put it in the hands of a lawyer.Also report it to the Wages and Hours division of the State Department of Labor, the local representative in the state legislature. Determine, first of all the remaining balance that your employer owes you before you hire an attorney but I would report the employer to the state regardless of the outcome. Bad people don't deserve to be in business.Next sales position you get are you going to have it in the form of a written contract?

Well I hope you have a copy of your employment agreement that states what you will be paid for hourly and commission wages, and your employee handbook. Make sure you have documentation of the hours you worked also. You should have immediately gone to payroll after your first check was messed up. If a mistake was made and it was payrolls error most companies would fix it right away, if it was your error you would have to wait till the next payday. Maybe the commission is paid at a different time. I don't know just thinking out loud.

If you don't get your money you need to report them to the wage and hourly board in your city/state. I would also file a complaint with the Attorney General Office in your state. Also you may need an attorney.

well what you want to do is get documentation of your sales and proof of the agreement for the commision, and try to explain to your employer what your problem is. If your employer doesnt agree or brushes you off, threaten him with taking him to court, if he still doesnt budge go ahead and get yourself a lawyer. If you have all of the proper documentation your sure to win.
