Nov. 13, 2011 - PRLog -- 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, plus punitive damages up to 3 times the amount of the commissions owed to the sales representative, plus the sales representative’s reasonable attorney’s fees and court costs.

Typical plaintiffs include real estate agents, real estate brokers, sales representatives and manufacturers representatives.  It doesn’t matter what product or service was sold, so long as the remuneration was commission based.
