  • Am I able to seek Commission payout? Washington

    I quit my job two weeks ago because I was offered a better position. I was a Senior Accout Executive and a top salesman for the company, working there about a year and a half. My quite date was March 8th or so, and I did not give them a two weeks notice due to the fact that they tend to ask people to leave then and there when they are notified the employee is leaving/quitting. I was owed about $2,200 from February's commission which they pay on the 21st of the following month, although we are also payed on the 6th of the month for our hours worked/salary. WHen I came in to pick up my paychecks on the 21st, I only received my paycheck for the hours I worked. When I asked them about this, they claimed that when I signed the new commission form on the 11th of Jan., it states that you have to be employed AT THE TIME you are payed commission in order to receive your commission check. Is this legel? It seems so unfair, especially since they hold our commission checks until the 2nd pay date of the following month (21st0 not the first (the 6th).

    In most states, yes. I took a hit of several thousand dollars in commissions in a similar situation, complained to the Dept of Labor and lost.
