Companies That Pay Commission or Bonuses May Owe Workers Back Wages

We are evaluating claims for commission and bonus workers to recover what is fowed to them by law.

Have you worked in commission sales? Or worked by the job or piece rate or bonus? New laws may help you recover the money you worked hard to earn.

Do you struggle to meet sales goals and have to rely on a company draw? Even more, have you wondered how your employer comes up with their numbers and whether you’re even being paid minimum wage?

Some employers are not paying their employees the way the law says they should and ofte the employees don’t even know  of this issue. If you suspect this could apply to you and want to know for sure, please contact us at 817-455-6822 or fill out the form on this page.

If you worked in a sales job and were paid wholly or partly on commission, we would like to help you evaluate whether your employer owes you money. 

Why Commission Sales Jobs?

Commission sales are a field that has recently been found by the courts to have many examples of unfair pay practices. Lots of companies ranging from grocery and jewelry stores to car dealerships to huge furniture chains have been violating wage rules. 

The rules are to make sure salespeople and retail workers get paid what they’re fairly owed.  

If you or someone you know has worked in commission sales or on an incentive pay system, you may have a claim. Our attorneys are currently investigating several industries that have a high percentage of commissioned employees in their workforce. 

Join our class action investigation to find out about the wages that may be fairly owed to you. Please contact us at 817-455-6822.

Types of Companies and Jobs

If you’ve worked for a company and have been paid on a time, piece rate, commission or other basis, these rules apply to you.

Companies that typically use this kind of pay structure are in the business of selling or renting goodsto the public, like:

  1. Furniture Retailers,
  2. Large Equipment Dealers,
  3. Car Dealerships,
  4. Mobile Phone Providers.
  5. Other industries like banking and financial institutions can have commission employees also.

Selling, driving and many other duties that are common at these companies are required to have rest breaks. The people most likely to have been a victim of labor and pay violations at these kinds of companies worked for incentive pay like commissions with a draw, or bonuses based on sales. If you or someone you know fits this profile, you may very well be a victim without knowing it.


Please contact our attorneys for a case evaluation. If you’ve worked for a company in an industry like this but had manager type duties, these rule violations may not apply to your situation. Anyone paid on salary for doing work like supervising others that required technical knowledge based on special training or experience likely does not have a claim.
