California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
I will try to do this. Let me know, of course, if I get it to you.
I hope this is it! I need an answer by today or tomorrow at the latest, as I have to put things in motion.
And, if you need to contact me again, please put my user id on the title line of your question (“ToCustomerrdquo;), and the system will send me an alert. Thanks!
Please let me know if Section 8.4 is enforceable. They have all of my client info already and know to the penny what has been sold.
Also, I presume that they will have to forward all commissions to me when due.
Does Section 7 make it necessary for me to wait until March 3rd to give them 30 days notice?
Please address anything else that is important.
A: If you have earned the commission prior to termination (everything necessary to make the sale is accomplished), then you are entitled to be paid. This issue is notorious for starting a war after contract termination, because the company never pays voluntarily.
A: Section 7 is poorly written. On its face it requires that notice be given only on the date 30 days before contract renewal. I doubt that anyone would interpret the agreement in that manner -- so, you could send notice now and see what they say. However, the letter of the contract requires notice be provided on March 3.
A: Nothing else comes to mind.
Hope this helps.
