Understand Your Rights Under Alabama Law
Under the Alabama Sales Representative’s Contract Act, businesses are required to pay Sales Representatives and Manufacturer’s Representatives fair commission based on the terms of a commission contract. If the employee representative is not under a contract, the employer must pay commission based on company customs or the customs of the industry. Additionally, employees must be paid their full commission within 30 days of the termination of the relationship.
Employers who fail to follow the law are liable for three times the amount of commission that should have been paid, in addition to attorney’s fees and court costs. Our attorneys work to resolve these cases through settlement whenever possible, but frequently we will prepare a case to take it to court to ensure our clients get fair pay for the work they have performed.
