Sales reps in California? Are you ready for the new law?

Unlike many new year resolutions that typically last only a few weeks (or days in my case), this one is here to stay. It’s called AB 1396, and it affects you if you have any employees in California that receive commissions.

What is AB 1396?

AB 1396 went into effect January 1, 2013. The new law requires organizations to create a contract between the employer and employee stating how commissions will be calculated and paid. The employer must also retain an acknowledged copy of the contract. The signed agreement will remain effective until a new agreement is signed or employment ceases, irrespective of any plan expiry dates.

Find full details on AB 1396 here.
