I will be assisting you. Let me review the question.
I'm still waiting for a response
what county / city in Arizona were you in do you reside in? (it makes a difference s to which court to go to)
I live at Grand Canyon, AZ, in Coconino county but the principle place of business is in Phoenix, Ax, Maricopa county
in addition, was there an employment agreement between you and the company. Finally for now, what state and county/city is the company based?
I did not see your reply. Thanks
no written contract, only verbal sales rep agreement. I have been working as a sales rep for this company since 2007. His place of business is pHOENIX, az , mARICOPA COUNTY
is the amount they owe you less than $10,000 or more?
in addition, were a W2 employee + commission? Were you commisson only? How long did you work for the company?
I believe you are trying to enter the chat. If you are having problems with your browser we can switch to Q&A format. If possible let me know or alert the site of the difficulties you are having
Commission only, Independent Sales Rep. I have my own rep company where I represent several other companies. I have been working for the company since 2007. Yes, a current balance owed from 2011 commissions approx $ 12,000 and now $24,000 for all of 2012. This company has been struggling to pay me for the past several years. It is a small scree n print tee shirt company selling to Resort & Souviner gift retailers.
I am still currently working for this company but obviously I am in a tough situation. If I continue to sell for him, he stays in business and attempts to pay back commissions, but each year I have sold less because I am not being paid
still waiting for answer
I am not familiar with this site....I thought I was suppose to be in chat. I would much rather work in a Q & A format. Let me know what you want
I really need to know, what happens if I sue for payment and how to go about it? If I decide to sue obviously I need to stop working for this company. Right now I am trying to set up a payment plan with several options with my last option taking him to court.
If you could help me that would be great, since I am still waiting on an answer
Ok, so what would be the SOL on moneys owed?
And can i represent myself?
Ok, MD LAW does have the information correct and i would like to continue figuring this out with ONLY MDLAW...thank you for watching these posts and understanding.
So with this said and i only have 3 years to file for unpaid commissions. What type of suite would this be if i started the paeprwork and then hired a laywer to help fight the battle.
I also do not believe this company would hire a lawyer since he cant even pay me or his other employees and i think he may file bankruptcy SOON!
also need to know how much i can file for in allowable damages besides the 37,000 owed on past commisssions
ok, but I have no written contract...as is the norm with resort gift reps working on commission only for smaller screen printers. So do i have any grounds without a contract? I can prove my sales and the 13% owed on those just from old emails agreeing to the 13% commission.
And if damages are hard to prove...what is the maximum interest rate I can impose? And i do have hardships, that I had to go into debt management program since I wasn't receiving my full expected commissions, would that be valid hardships for a monitary value? .
Overall I would like to know what I am talking about if he refuses to pay my proposed options and don't want to give any threats of court... but i want to sound like I can follow through with civil action if neccesary. ( and win)
So just making sure I have a leg to stand on, how to proceed if necessary and how much i should ask for?
