Leaving an employer can be a difficult situation, especially if you are owed unpaid commissions. As long as you complete the necessary work to earn a commission, the payment is protected by law. In California, labor law considers commissions to be wages, due according to the normal schedule and to be distributed as payroll. Fortunately, if you have unpaid commissions, you can fight back against your employer and collect your unpaid earnings.
