I live and work in NJ. I am a commissioned sales rep (my pay is part
base pay, part commission). I am about to go on maternity leave under
FMLA and was just informed by my manager that not only would I not
receive commission for sales made in my territory during my leave, but also that I would not receive any quota relief in spite of my leave.
So, in other words, I am going to be held to the same quota (in spite of being out on leave for 12 weeks under FMLA) AND any sales that come in from my customers (and I have a defined account list) will not count towards that quota (nevermind receive commission payments).
This doesn't seem legal. Any attorneys or HR professionals with insight on this?
