The Law in Missouri is Clear: You Deserve the Pay You’ve Earned
Unpaid Wages in Missouri
Under the Missouri Unpaid Wage Law, employers are obligated to pay your final wages in a timely fashion. If an employee is terminated or resigns, the employer must pay all wages on the terminated employee’s last work day. Unfortunately, many employers take advantage of Missouri workers who are unfamiliar with the regulations.
In addition to the unpaid wages that are owed to an employee, a terminated employee may be entitled to waiting time penalties. § 290.110, RSMo. If a Missouri employer fails to timely pay all wages or overtime pay owed to a terminated employee, Missouri law allows recovery for statutory liquidated damages, including the employee’s daily rate of pay for up to sixty (60) days.
Unpaid Commissions in Missouri
Employers doing business in Missouri are obligated to pay sales representatives their commissions in a timely fashion. Unfortunately, many employers take advantage of Missouri sales representatives who are unfamiliar with the regulations.
Under the Missouri Unpaid Commission Law, a sales representative is defined as “a person … who is compensated, in whole or in part, by commission to solicit orders.” When a sales representative is terminated or resigns from his or her employment, the employer has thirty (30) days to pay all commissions that were due at the time of termination or resignation. All commissions that become “due” after the date of termination or resignation have to be paid within thirty (30) days of becoming due.
In addition to the unpaid commissions that are owed to a sales representative, a sales representative may be entitled to recover an additional amount from the date of termination to the date of payment, as well as attorneys’ fees and court costs associated with having to file and prosecute a claim against their employer. § 407.913, RSMo.
