Depends on your boss’s personality. If they are defensive and narcissistic let it go for a few days and approach it carefully. I’d assume it was a computer malfunction or transfer mix up that will take place early next week. If it goes longer than that then I’d bring it up as “when can I expect my paycheck?”

They admitted it was a manual process and overlooked for the 4 of us

Concerning. How big is your company? I’ve only been at companies that have tools that make commission fairly automated.

It's weird. If they have an excuse I guess it's fine but I'd keep a closer eye from now on!

He never forgets. Because he knows I will be pestering him for that. Lol. But seriously, you can be upfront about it and asked him politely. Maybe he was too busy or he had out-of-work problems to deal with.

Assume it was an oversight and not malicious. Approach it that way, and you should be fine (and you have the law on your side, if necessary).

Thankfully our boss never forgets to pay or commission. I'm not that worried because my co-workers are there to remind him. Lol. Approach your boss and bring up the matter in a polite way.

Haven’t had them “forget” but have for sure had them screw it up. Read your sales plan closely and triple check the math on every commission check, especially if there’s spiffs or accelerators involved

No. That has never happened to me. I would be very concerned about that. Seems very shady.

Have any of you approached your employer for reimbursement for being asked to use your phone at work? Specifically things like texting your boss while they are in court?

In our state, an employer must reimburse you if they direct you to use your personal phone for work. It seems petty, but I’m trying to (rightfully) cash in on something that I would rather not have to do.
