  • Florida Commissions and salary not paid – What to do now? Florida

    Hello All,

    I was working in a Florida office for a Boston, Mass. based company and was terminated verbally. The contract I have with them states either party can terminate the contract/employment but it MUST be done via written notice. I gave them that written notice a week later.

    Here are my issues:
    1) Can I have that contract enforced to the point they have to pay me through the written notice date? How?
    2) I have EARNED commissions up to the point of termination (regardless of the verbal of written notice date) and have not received payment for them. How do I get paid for these when the company refuses?
    3) If I need to file a small claims action do I file it against the office in Tampa or the office in Boston of which I was paid out of and have the contract with?

    Please help me out. Feel free to send any questions.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Matt

    1. Sue them.
    2. What does your contract say about earned commission in the event of termination?

      My contract states nothing about the commissions- only my offer letter and it is vague...

        Contact a local attorney versed in employment and contract law. Florida did away with its state DOL several years ago, and the federal DOL doesn't normally get involved with contract issues outside of minimum wage.

          How do I sue them? To the Boston office or Tampa office??

            You normally have to file in the state in which the violation occurred or in which the company is registered. Contact an attorney.
