A “sales representative” is someone who contracts with or is employed by a “principal” for the solicitation of orders or the sale of goods and who is paid, in whole or in part, by commission. These arrangements are commonplace in Michigan, particularly in the automotive industry where “life of part” sales contracts are common. If a principal does not timely pay a sales representative’s commission, Michigan’s sales representative act, MCL 600.2961, allows a sales representative to recover three times the commissions due (known as treble damages) and the representative’s costs and attorney fees. Neuman Anderson Grieco McKenney, P.C. represents sales representatives in various industries to ensure that they are timely paid the commissions due to them. Our firm also represents business owners defending claims brought by sales representatives where no commissions are due.
