Incentive Compensation and Bonus Details

While employers generally are not required by law to offer incentive compensation such as commissions or bonuses, they are required by many state laws and common law to pay what they promise.

If you were promised by your employer commissions or bonuses, but your employer did not follow through with that promise, you may have a legal claim.

Examples of Potential Claims for Incentive Compensation

Some examples of potential claims related to commissions or bonuses are below.

  • Your employer promised you commissions for work performed, you performed the work, but your employer did not pay you what was promised.
  • Your employer calculates your commissions incorrectly.
  • Your employer offered you a guaranteed bonus but you did not receive it.
  • Your employer changed your bonus program after you earned your bonus, and then did not pay what it promised.
