What rights do I have to compensation if I am hired based on sales commission?

In some states, you are entitled to a written agreement with your employer if you are hired for a position in which you will be paid based on sales commissions. This agreement should specify your rights to compensation as a result of earning sales commissions. Some states also have specific laws that deal with the timeframes for paying sales commissions, and offer remedies for sales representatives working on commission who do not receive their sales commissions in a timely fashion, or at all, from their employers.
