What rights do I have to collect unpaid sales commissions after leaving my company?

In recent years, many states have enacted specific laws that set forth timeframes and guidelines for sales representatives to collect unpaid sales commissions from their former employers. These laws might go so far as to specify the terms and conditions concerning the earning and payment of sales commissions, or may require that the parties enter into a written contract that specifies those terms. In any case, your ability to collect unpaid sales commissions after leaving your company will be determined primarily by state law and any written contracts that exist between you and your former company.
