Commission Structure Changes

When i started working at my job i was given a commission structure on my sales (certain amt depending on % to goal). Now they are wanting to change the commission in which you dont make any commission at all if you dont reach at least 82% of your goal (effective immediately) is this legal?

Restructed commissions.

The answer to you question requires more information. In general, where the contact that an employee has with the employer permits such changes, pay plans are subject to change. Every employee has a contract with his employer. In Texas, a contract must be reduced to writing if it is not to be performed within one year. This law called the statute of frauds can impair recovery in some senarios. If you are in Texas and have more information we may be able to help.
