  • Refusal to pay wages Georgia

    I resigned as a loan officer at a mortgage company in Georgia in April. I was 100% commission. My last commission check was in May. One of my loans closed in June. The mortgage company refuses to pay me the commission due me. What can I do to get the money due me?

    In Georgia, unpaid wage claims are diverted to US DOL. You would start there and if efforts are fruitless, you would file a civil case for back wages.

    Before you head that route though, I'd suggest reviewing your commissions documents. These documents should outline when/if commissions are payable. If commissions are payable under the company approved plan, then I'd agree that you'd have a case.

      robb71 is right. The commission agreement should states whether commissions are payable if the loan close after you separate from the company. It is by no means required by law.

      Having said that, however, were you an exempt employee? Do you know?
