Kansas City, MO asked in Contracts and Employment Law for Kansas

Q: Unpaid commission.

I negotiated a new contract for my commission and it was effective immediately last month. The commission is paid this month. In the contract is states I will be paid gross parts and labor sales, however, I have only been paid gross profit on parts and labor. The contract states paid parts and labor gross. It does not state gross profit anywhere on the contract. It is signed by myself and my manager who authorized this. Am I out of luck? Or should I pursue collecting the gross that was discussed and stated on the signed contract? I’m unsure on what my options are. The difference between the gross and gross profit is roughly 5,000 dollars that I am missing.
