O’Brien Law Firm helps deserving sales rep recover $42,000 in unpaid commissions

In a dispute settled on confidential terms, the O’Brien Law Firm was able to help the firm’s client recover $42,000 in unpaid bonus money in their pocket, without having to file a lawsuit. In that case, the employer contended that the sales representative was not entitled to the annual bonus because the sales rep left employment after the year had completed, but before the bonus was to be paid. However, the company had failed to put any sort of rule like this in writing, and was relying on its supposed custom and frankly, its desire to simply not pay out this bonus to someone who was no longer of value to the company. However, upon the O’Brien Law Firm’s genuine threat of lawsuit, and an explanation as to why the company would likely lose in court given that the employee had completed the year to which the bonus applied, the company relented and agreed to pay out 100% of the bonus due to this deserving client.
