Is it legal for my sales commission to be taken by my boss and why? 3 Answers as of August 25, 2015

I work as a sales person at a gym where I am paid commission when I sign up new guests. My boss recently took two hundred dollars off my last paycheck because of monthly late charges that guests that I signed up had to pay through their bank. It is like I have been decommissioned. Is this legal?

MS is an employment at will State, which means that he can set the terms of employment. If the practice you are referring to is a term of employment, then it would be allowed.

I know of no reason your under GA law why the employer may not do this, based on state law. I suggest you contact Wage and Hour Division (WHD) - U.S. Department of Labor http://www.wagehour.dol.gov/ They have investigators that answer such questions, based on Federal law. If you are not in GA, resubmit your question, and identify your state.

I need to see your employment/commission agreement or the manual you work under. This does not sound correct but it depends on your agreement.
