We frequently represent clients who are owed incentive compensation, including bonuses or sales commissions, by a present or former employer. Whether owed under a company incentive compensation or commission plan or under an individual employment agreement, we have decades of experience in negotiating successful resolutions of such claims, as well as in pursuing – and winning – lawsuits and arbitrations to recover bonuses and incentive compensation. Our clients include employees and executives across all sectors of the economy, including securities industry professionals whom we represent in FINRA arbitrations.
With respect to unpaid commissions, New York has strong protections to ensure that employees and independent contractors receive the commission compensation they are owed. We have successfully represented many executives and employees in recovering commissions through litigation and arbitration.
