At Bochte, Kuzniar & Navigato, P.C., we pride ourselves on our ability to tackle any employment or business law case.

Our lawyers understand that independent sales representatives have distinctive employment law needs. As such, we seek to provide the most advantageous legal solutions to those facing disputes over commissions or other sales related legal matters.
Non-Payment of Commissions
Many times, sales representatives see their commissions withheld by managers, superiors, or supervisors who resent the high performing sales representative. When a successful sales representative out earns his or her superior, commissions may be denied out of jealousy. Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate your case and track down the commissions you are owed. As an Illinois sales representative, you do have the right to your commissions and we will ensure you receive it.
When a sales representative’s territory is realigned, he or she may struggle to meet quotas. If you are a sales representative and your territory was suddenly realigned without explanation, there could be an ulterior motivation. Sometimes, territory realignment is used as an excuse for age discrimination or other forms of discrimination. Sales representatives are sent to new territories where they cannot meet their quotas. They are then terminated or placed under unreasonable performance improvement plans that will lead to their eventual termination. Such sabotage based on discrimination is actionable by the sales representative.
