In instances of such injustice, our Austin unpaid commissions lawyer is well-equipped with expertise and experience to intervene and provide assistance.
Legal Rights To Commissions & Bonuses
Employers frequently utilize diverse incentives to meet their goals. The terms 'commission' and 'bonus' are occasionally used interchangeably, such as when an employer provides a bonus to a team for achieving specific productivity goals. These structures are usually outlined in employment agreements, contracts, offer letters, or specific plans. If an employer doesn't uphold their agreement, Fair Labor Law is here to assist. We thoroughly analyze all pertinent legal documents, assess the case's strength, and explore available enforcement options.
Can My Employer Refuse To Pay My Commissions After I Quit or Get Fired?
What happens if a salesperson closes a deal but resigns or is terminated before the commissions are scheduled to be paid? Are bonuses or commissions owed if you're not employed on the payout date? The response may hinge on the exact language of the contract terms, offer letters, company policies, or the bonus/commission plan. If the contract states that payment is conditioned on continued employment through the payout date, that may mean no commissions are due. However, in Texas, absent such conditions, employees generally retain rights to their commissions or bonuses post-employment. Another scenario involves unfulfilled oral commitments by the employer. Even if oral, Texas law can uphold these agreements. Proof of the agreed-upon terms then becomes crucial.
