This is a further information request so that I can provide you a proper answer to your legal question. Please continue in this same question thread.
You say that the CCMA said that they would assist. Can you explain more?
You are entitled to refer the dispute to the CCMA (either conciliation, mediation or arbitration) and the CCMA then has to assist. What reason did they give, and what procedure did you follow?
I'm assuming that you have a written employment agreement?
What sort of commission amount are you talking about?
Awaiting your further information.
The CCMA probably said that they won't handle your case because they thought that it was a money claim that you had against the company?
If you want to try that route again you should, and you should ensure that you specify that your commission claim forms part of your salary that you get from the company on a monthly basis. If it is a "salary" claim, then the CCMA should assist.
Otherwise, you'll need to hire an attorney and issue a summons in the Magistrates Court claiming payment of the R30,000. You'll need to ensure that you have a way to calculate what the commission should be, or at least previous calculations so that you can show the court what your commission claim is.
You could go to the Dept of Labour and ask them to assist, but it is a painful process, and they would only really help if your claim was about wrongful termination - not really a claim for commissions.
I'm afraid that it's against the terms and conditions of this site to deal with you directly, and also to contact customers directly. At any rate, giving the CCMA official my name is ***** ***** to assist you. It'll mean nothing to them!
