Experienced Des Moines Wage And Hour Trial Attorneys
Multiple overlapping federal and state wage and hour laws can be confusing to even the most diligent employee. What can my employer withhold? Can my employer “fine” me based on my performance? What about overtime pay and meal breaks? And what are my employer’s legal obligations regarding commission pay, and the payment of sick time and vacation pay after I leave voluntarily or am terminated?

HELPING EMPLOYEES IN A BROAD RANGE OF INDUSTRIES AND POSITIONS.
We help people working in a broad range of positions throughout Polk County and surrounding communities. We have represented corporate officers and CEOs, as well as less advantaged workers facing language barriers and other challenges in factory and manufacturing settings.
Often, workers are unaware or unsure of their rights. In a current case, an employee was terminated from his retail store sales position after completing a minor sale that a coworker had, unbeknownst to our client, begun the day before. Our client’s employer claimed that, because he stole someone’s sale and didn’t follow his employment agreement, it did not need to pay him commission owed for the month preceding his termination.
Does this employee have a case? We think so. We are fighting for full payment of commission for our client based on wage and hour laws.
