Independent Sales Representatives: Are You Owed Unpaid Commissions?

Many sales contractors are unaware of a New Jersey statute that protects their right to timely payment of sales commissions they stood to receive prior to termination of their contract, or their discharge or resignation. The statute, known as the New Jersey Sales Representatives' Rights Act, specifically entitles independent sales representatives to commissions they earned within 30 days of the date their contract terminated, or within 30 days after the date the commissions were due, whichever is later. The law even entitles sales representatives to commissions on goods merely ordered on or before the last day of their contract, even if the order might have been accepted by their principal, delivered, and paid for after their termination. Even a contractual waiver of unpaid commissions is void and unenforceable under the Act
