    Question [=?] Commissions recieved after leaving the company

    Hello,

    I am ready to give my 2 weeks notice and I currently work on a salary and commission structure. Although we close deals, we do not receive the commission until the invoice is paid. My last day of employment would be 10/6/06. I have 5 outstanding invoices processed and mailed prior to 9/22/06 (giving notice on 9/25/06). Am I entiled to this commission.

    Also I won a contest as well on 8/26/06 and was to receive $750 payment but have not at this time, am I entiltled to the winnings as well.

    Thank you in advance for all your assistance.

    It likely depends on company policy. If the practice is you must still be employed when the money comes in, then that would mean you don;t get comissions that aren't payable until after you are gone.

    Laymans suggestion:

    I'd look up PA's wage laws--seems to me that there is law on point that accrued commissions that are payable in future as bills are paid are wages owed whenhte bills are paid and subject to payment to prior employee

    I got to it via Pa Dept of Labor and Industry--there was a specific section as to earned commissions.

    But I had to play with website to get to wage and hours regs. Sorry I don't have a good link.
