Unpaid Commissions and Bonuses in Texas
Get Help from Our Houston Unpaid Work Lawyers
Sales commissions and incentive bonuses make up a critical chunk of compensation each year for many working Texans. In fact, salespeople at companies like Oracle and Cisco Systems rake in an average of $70,000 in annual commissions on top of their base salary. For some, commissions are the only way they can get by. The same can be said about earned bonuses.

Difference Between Commissions and Bonuses
Before we get into how to recover commissions and bonuses, it is important to clarify the difference between the two. When we talk commissions, we mean a mutually agreed upon fee accruing to an employee for facilitating, initiating, and executing a commercial transition. A bonus, on the other hand, is gratuity given as a gift or compensation earned as a reward for achieving a certain goal or milestone.
