I work for a Solar Contractor as a W-9 employee in the sales department. (Salary plus commissions) I sold a $1.5M dollar solar project which we have 99% completed. The customer has paid all suppliers and subcontractors directly per the agreement. There is still a milestone balance left (approx. 5% of the contract price) plus a 10% holdback that will be due in February. I worked as the salesperson to get the job and then as project manager throughout the project (which I was kind of forced into without any additional pay) Normally I would have been paid all my commission by now but not on this job. Our owner is having a challenge getting anymore monies from the customer. I am afraid that I will not see my commission balance owed to me. Can I put a mechanics lien against the customer for my commission amount while they have a balance owed to us?
