In our industry, keeping track of your income so that you can calculate your commission can be difficult…and if you’re on an hourly vs/plus commission compensation plan, it can get incredibly complicated. How do you know that your paychecks are accurate if you aren’t getting pay stubs from your employer? Are you supposed to take it on faith that no mistakes were made?
If your owner is calculating payroll every week, chances are that they have some record of your sales/hours. If you request it, they have no excuse to keep it from you. I would be extremely suspicious of an owner that refuses to show you your detailed pay information upon request.
Unfortunately, owners in eight states aren’t legally compelled to provide the wage statement. Check this listing and see whether or not yours requires detailed pay stubs to be provided by the owner. If it doesn’t, you can seek the services of an employment attorney in your area.
