Resolved Question:

Earlier this year our employer informed the sales force he was going to reduce the amount of the gross profit generated by the sales force by 5% as his bookkeeper could make the monthly numbers match from the sales report and the profit and loss statement. He stated at the end of the year he would pay back the comissions due on the difference when the books balanced. Is this legal and what recourse would a sales person have if the employer elects not to pay the comissions due?
