New York Employment Lawyer For Commision Disputes
Many different types of employees receive compensation in the form of commissions: real estate agents and sales staff, headhunters and stockbrokers, to name a few.
Employers/clients have a limited amount of time from when the commission is earned in which to make a payment to the employee. If the employer does not pay in a timely fashion, or if the employer underpays or does not pay the proper amount of commission, the worker has grounds to take their employer to court.

Compensation In Failure To Pay Commission Lawsuits
An employee seeking money in a breach of contract lawsuit can ask for “liquidated damages.” Liquidated damages are those spelled out in the initial contract the two parties signed when they entered into business together. For example, if a home seller entered into an exclusive contract with a real estate agent and was obligated to pay that agent a percentage of the home sale price but failed to do so, the contract specifies damages that may be sought.
The employment lawyers at the Law Offices of Louis Stober, Jr., L.L.C., understand how important wage issues are for any worker. In cases of commissions, the dollar value is typically very high. We take great care in thoroughly documenting your case for presentation in civil court.
