Independent Sales Representative Rights Center
The Independent Sales Representatives Law Center was created to help guide individuals and sale rep agencies who make their living as independent sales representatives. Many states, including New Jersey, have enacted laws that offer significant legal protection to independent sales to ensure they are paid for the sales services they provide their principals. For example, New Jersey has enacted the New Jersey Sales Representatives' Rights Act, which provides incentive for principals to timely compensate their independent sales representatives for sales commissions that were earned and are due to them. Under New Jersey law, a principal who fails to make timely payment of an earned sales commission will be liable in an amount equal to three times the unpaid commission, as well as all attorneys fees and costs to the independent sales representative.
