Is Your Unpaid Commission Subject to the New Jersey Sales Representatives Rights Act?

New Jersey Sales Representatives
  1. Are you an independent sales or manufacturing representative? A “sales representative” is an independent sales company or individual person, who is not an employee, and contracts with a principal to solicit orders and is compensated at least in part, by a commission.
  2. Do you contract for the sale of a product with a principal? A “principal” is a person who manufacturers, produces, imports or distributes a product or offers a service, contracts with a sales representative to solicit orders for the product or service and compensates the sales representative at least in part, by a commission.
  3. Are you compensated by a principal for selling products or services by commissions? A commission is compensation that accrues to a sales representative for payment by a principal that is earned through the last day on which the service was performed by the sales representative and which the rate is expressed as a percentage of the dollar amount of orders or sales or as a specified amount per order or per sale.

If you answer all the following questions yes, and have earned a commission that is now due, the New Jersey Sales Representatives Act will govern the collection of your unpaid commission.

Client Reviews
We had a wrongful termination issue combined with a denial of unemployment insurance. Chris Eibeler was our primary attorney. His partner Bob Smith also consulted and gave us good advice. They were both so kind, caring, and professional. They guided us though a very tough time and a positive outcome versus a prior employer. They were also able to reverse our denial of unemployment insurance. I cannot recommend Smith and Eibeler highly enough. The entire staff is very professional, personable, and caring. Tom Wilson
I went to Smith Eibeler LLC for a last minute unemployment matter. Chris, Diane and his staff were very professional and easy to talk to. They provided knowledgeable insight and also kept me in the loop with the what was happening. I would not hesitate to go to him again. John Jung
Chris Eibeler (and the whole team) is very knowledgeable in all aspects of employment/unemployment here in NJ. They break down the most difficult aspects of the law, which allows you to conceptualize and better understand the complexities of the NJ Labor & Employment system. Smith Eibeler should be your first call regarding any Employment, workforce, or Labor questions here in New Jersey. I highly recommend them. Brian Allen
I approached Chris Eibeler regarding an unemployment case in early 2016. Him and his staff are some of the most professional people I have ever dealt with. The process took a while, but his approach to hard questioning helped me win my case. He knows how to get the job done and I am glad I went to him. I would recommend him to anyone in the future who asks for a lawyer. Thank you Chris! Tim F.
I highly recommend the office of Smith Eibeler for employment related issues, particularly anything related to restrictive covenants or post-employment contracts. I found Smith Eibeler via the web and cannot believe how fortunate I am to have found them. My case was handled by Bob Smith who represented me in a potential lawsuit by my former employer for violation of a post-employment contract (not a restrictive covenant per se). Bob was professional, friendly, understanding, and above all extremely helpful. Bob helped me avoid a lawsuit and was extremely knowledgeable in this field. I was thoroughly impressed with his prowess. Hopefully I will never have a legal issue related to employment again, but if I do, I will not hesitate to retain Smith Eibeler again! Gavin Tully
