The Illinois Sales Representative Act is a little known law which states that a principal who fails to pay a commission to a sales representative is liable for the commissions due. In addition, the sales representative can potentially be awarded 3 times the amount of overdue commissions as punitive damages, plus the sales representative’
Typical plaintiffs include sales representatives and manufacturers representatives. However, not all commissioned sales representatives are covered by the Act. For instance, if you are an employee of the principal you are not covered under the Act and you will need to sue under a different Illinois law. Also, it only applies to a principal who manufactures, produces, imports or distributes a product for sale. Our experience allows us to quickly determine whether you are eligible to bring a claim under the Act, and, if not, what alternative remedies are available to you.
