Car dealerships frequently fail to pay their salespersons minimum wages, agreed upon commissions, and unlawfully retain wages and/or make illegal deductions from compensation. For example, in many work weeks salespersons do not earn enough in commissions, when combined with a meager weekly draw, to reach federal and state minimum wage requirements. Also, many dealerships fail to calculate commissions in accordance with sales representatives’ commission agreements by illegally including “packs” or other costs that are not permitted by the written commission agreement. Sometimes, dealerships illegally charge back salespersons commissions for things like repairs.
If you have worked as an automobile salesperson in the last 3 years and think you may be owed minimum wages or commissions, please contact Werman Salas P.C.
