No, the laws really are not different, but if they made you sign such an agreement then they can hold you liable (they could do this with hourly and salaried
employees as well) and the form you signed would likely be held to be your authorization. As far as not being paid your final check. Commissions are owed to be paid when they are earned in accordance with the employer's policy on payroll but you must be paid at least once a month. Upon termination
, the employee must be paid on their next regular pay day all pay owed and if they are not doing so then you can file a complaint with the department of labor
and hour division for non-payment of wages. As far as the deduction from pay issue, if the initial agreement you signed about paying for damage did not specify it would be deducted from your pay, this is another complaint you can file with the department of labor because in order to deduct from pay the agreement must specify it would be deducted from pay (you only need to sign something once, but it must specify this).
