Employment Law question...hired in 2010 for a collection agency in which signed agreement was on a commission basis. Well as determined by the president 2/2012 company not doing well so took all commission away and now on bonus schedule for 5 different categories. Also initial agreement was after a year of employment get 1 week vacation, had health insurance, and several holidays. Now since feb, my vacation is down to 2 days, several holidays we had last year are no longer (gave us two float days to use instead) and also no health coverage.

Also to note we have asked repeatedly for the bonus numbers and how he configures the bonus schedule and have not received 1 since commission was taken away.
