  • Terminated without commission pay New Jersey

    It's not easy researching NJ laws; a friend of mine was terminated from her job and was told that she couldn't receive her commission pay that was earned. At our job we get paid hourly plus commission, but all she received was her hourly pay. From hours researching online, if we lived in California that would be unlawful, but what about New Jersey? And by the way, in our handbook it does not state that commission is not paid if the employee is terminated.

    If New Jersey law is silent, then normally it's up to the employer, as long as she received minimum wage. However, it can't hurt for her to file the claim for unpaid wages and see what the state decides.

      I agree. It can't hurt to file a claim. Usually commissions are paid once they are earned & the amount can be reasonably calculated.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
