Have a local lawyer review your contract and provide you with legal options. There is no way to know your rights in this situation without seeing the contract.

No useful answer is possible without seeing the contract. Additionally, you may be giving away claims for prohibited discrimination and unpaid over-time under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Use the "Find a Lawyer" feature to connect with an employment attorney in your area. Many will offer free initial consultation.

You may have a breach of contract case for the unpaid commissions depending on the language in the contract. You may also have a Fair Labor Standards Act claim if you are not receiving overtime and are a non-exempt employee.
