  • Mispaid on my commission

    I get a base salary and commission and I work in California. My commission on my December (05) pay check was wrong, which I found out this month (May 06). I showed the error to my manager but she said that it is not possible to pay those commission since it was not detected on a timely fashion. I didn't know it was a big deal for them to give me something that is rightfully mine even if it is after 10 years. Please do let me know my limitations.

    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    You need to contact the California DOL and file a complaint. Commissions are considered wages under Labor Code 204.

      You have up to 4 years to file a claim with the DLSE. Here is a link to the district offices.

      I have been interested in employment rights for some time, however I am not a lawyer. Always consult with an attorney, as they are more knowledgeable.
