Common types of wage claims filed in Santa Barbara involve employees who were not paid all commissions they are owed. By law, unpaid commissions must be paid at an employee’s termination or within 72 hours of the employee’s resignation. If not paid, the employee can seek the full amount of the unpaid commission, plus penalties, in a wage claim. They can file their wage claim either with the Santa Barbara Labor Commissioner or in civil court. See the pros and cons of filing with the Labor Commissioner vs. in civil court.
