Were You Cheated out of a Commission or Bonus?/
Employers often intentionally withhold providing any commission plan or bonus plan in writing so they can unilaterally and arbitrarily change the terms and manipulate the payment of earned bonuses and commission of hard working sales representatives. If you have not been paid the money you earned, you may be able to get the compensation you deserve. A Florida unpaid commission and unpaid bonus attorney can explain your rights and assess what pay you are owed.
Methods Some Employers Use to Short Workers
Some employers make the calculation and determination of the commissions incredibly confusing and complex. They may even miscalculate overtime pay for employees with commissions or bonuses.
They might tie commissions to a performance factor that is so discretionary and arbitrary that hard working sales representatives can never determine what they are owed. A worker may feel cheated out of earned commissions and simply give up in frustration.
Other employers might refuse to pay earned commissions altogether. This often happens when an employee leaves the company, despite having closed a deal or earned the commission.

Were you not paid a bonus or commission you earned? Contact our employment law attorneys at Feldman Williams, PLLC. Our aggressive representation will ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
Why Employers Want to Settle
The more an employer fights an unpaid wage claim, the more attorney’s fees it will owe to the Plaintiff’s attorneys. This usually creates a huge incentive to settle and pay the owed bonus or commission, but at the very least, an offer to compromise if the sums are disputed.
The Law is on Your Side
Whether the agreement to pay a bonus is oral or in writing, any contractor or employee working for commissions or bonuses who earned a bonus or commission is legally entitled to recover the wages owed. In Dade County, there is even an ordinance that awards 3 times the commissions owed for breach of the agreement.
