There is a case in NJ that I believe is still pending: https://www.leagle.com/decision/infdco20180914m30

New Jersey Sales Representative Act, N.J.S.A. 2A:61A-1, et seq. (the "NJSRA") [Docket Entry No. 34]. Defendant WBM, LLC ("WBM").

TLE, in this NJ case, is arguing to get paid on commissions. There are potential quadruple damages at stake. In this case or NJ, in general, does the NJSRA refer ONLY to people who sell goods for commissions or could they also be applied to an independent contractor that provides advisory/consultant work in a sales process and get paid commission on the sale of a company?

Thanks for anyone who can shed some light on this!

  • Found this in reference to my ?, but I am not sure how it would be applied...none listed below apply to me/my case. There are a few qualifications: 1. The representative must be truly independent of the principal. Employees are not covered. 2. Some specified jobs are not covered, such as real estate agents and securities brokers. 3. Just as the principal can be liable to the rep for attorneys’ fees and costs, the reverse is also true if the rep files frivolous litigation against the principal. So it is important that the rep act carefully so as not to shoot him/herself in the foot. – Sizzle Jul 2 '19 at 15:29
