In a landmark employment law case recently decided, Attorney Jeffrey Mazer, of the Mazer Law Group, LLC, an attorney who our firm works with very closely on all employment law related matters was victorious in a decision, where A Superior Court judge has ruled that if an employee brings in work to a company, and that company in the normal course of business pays some sort of referral or commission based fee, then that fee is considered a part of an employee’s overall compensation. As such, even if an employee were to be fired, quit, or is otherwise not with the company any lead from that former employee that results in a sale, settlement, or any other financial benefit must be paid to the former employee. Should the employee not receive their fair share of the fee or sale, the employee would be entitled to 3 times the normal compensation pursuant to the Massachusetts Wage an Hour Act.
