  • How Long before I can receive final pay on commissions?

    I live in Alabama, but worked as an outside sales rep. for a company in Paramount, California. As of January 21st, 2005, I turned in my notice to quit, with a statement of commissions I'm due for December sales. The total amount was $11,887.21, todate I've received only $1599.66, leaving a balance of $10,287.55. The owner did not want a notice, so my last day was 1/21/05. I know the company has received payment for the balance of these sales but the owner will not respond to emails or telephone calls. What is the time limit for the company to pay me the balance of my commissions? What are my recourses if they do not pay me within that time limit? HELP! Thank you.

    Alabama

    Though the company is based in California, you work in Alabama, right? You don't have a lot of options if you do. You can read Alabama's wage law at: http://www.alalabor.state.al.us/wage...__the_dept.htm

      Intiate claim from Alabama?

      Yes, I work in Alabama as that is where I live. I work from my home office. I sell all over the country, my biggest accounts being in Georgia & Texas. Zero accounts in Alabama. So, my claim would have to initiate from AL. then? Great, I was hoping Ca as I think I'd have a better chance collecting if I initated things from there. Thanks for your help.

        Yes, your claim will have to be filed with Alabama and it will fall under Alabama law. So, I don't believe that you have any recourse.
