    Default Getting Paid Commission when Resigning

    My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Arkansas

    I live in Arkansas the company is based in Kansas.

    I collected money on a sale a couple of months ago. I resigned last week. Last month the company paid 50% of the commission, this is normal. I was told today that since I resigned they will not be paying me the remaining commission. I have looked through the employee handbook and it does not discuss this at all. The company has 100% of the money in hand for the job. Sales people usually get 50% up front and 50% after the job is complete. I believe morally I am entitled to the money I collected and earned but did not know legally.

    In most, if not all states, employers have similar obligations to pay commissions as they do to pay straight wages.

    If Arkansas has a state Department of Labor ("DOL"), you should contact this state agency to complain that your former employer has not paid you all of your last commission. If Arkansas does not have a state DOL, then you may want to consult with an attorney to sue your former employer for the money.

    I agree.

    I know of only a few rare cases where a company paid out on commissions after a person has resigned.

    Companies LOVE it when people quit before a commission is paid out... money goes right to the bottom line
