What I can do if I am not getting paid the right commissions for my sales? They argue that the accounting system is not properly working, but that is not my fault, because I keep selling to my customers.

Department of Labor complaint would resolve the issue.


Create your own calculator and document this relentlessly.


Before department of labor work through chain of command for issue resolution presenting documentation of what is owed, what you’ve been paid and the disparity. Show that you’ve tried in hood faith yo resolve and DOCUMENT. Email them, print hard copies of responses. If they call/ meet with you, email them a summary of the meeting. Save it and print a hard copy. An attorney or DOL will need this. Also try HR or who hired you. Helpful if you have an employment contract to refer to.


That is unacceptable! Go to your manager or HR or upper management


Report this matter to your manager. You can also make your own record if possible. This way, you can claim your commissions.


Honestly I am feeling disappointed. Will be looking for another opportunity. Thanks


Do they at least know the correct amount you deserve? I worked at a startup with this issue but they had a system keeping track so it was on record. They fixed it every two month.. I didn’t mind since I loved working there and they were open about it

For all those saying manager.. a lot of times the manager knows but cant do anything and some companies don’t have hr

They know about the situation, but I have logged all the sales orders and every month, I need to check one by one and see if I get paid for those. This is so annoying, and honestly I am tired they don’t have a solution for this. I need to also been checking if the orders had been billed and pay from the customer in order to have paid my commissions.

Raise hell to HR. That happened to me at a previous job.

I work for a fortune 100 where this occurs regularly. It’s super exhausting to keep track of. They’ve openly stated their system works the way it was designed. At least we’re on the same page.

It's likely they are taking g advantage of you call the labor board

Uhhh that is a big red flag. I would be looking for a new job if I were you.

Advice on dealing with criticism of your writing? I write, my supervisor rewrites it, then her supervisor rewrites that. By the time it gets back to me, I just want to go with what the last person came up with because it's so much better than what I wrote, and I'm so weary of the repeated exercise. The process is taking the joy out of writing and negatively affects how I feel about the writing I do outside of work for mere enjoyment.
