In Illinois, there is a statute known as the "Illinois Independent Sales Representative Act" that allows sales representatives to recover commissions, punitive sales commission for up to three times the sales commissions, and attorneys fees and legal costs, when the sales representative is not paid commissions on sales made by the sales representative.
The purpose of this act is to protect the rights of sales representatives and ensure timely commission payment. Legal disputes on sales commission can arise for a variety of reasons. It is a common situation for a sales representative to close a sale but then leave the company, and then not receive the sales commission. Whatever the situation, you may need a sales commission attorney to represent you.
