Thank you for your question today, I look forward to assisting you. I bring nearly 20 years of legal experience in various disciplines.
On the issue of the commission, it's going to depend on how the company defines the earning of commissions. If they require that funding be completed by the funding bank, then that's going to be legal. State's don't define what are or are not earned commissions. They just hold the employer to the definition that they have.
On the issue of the question concerning age, that's an illegal question to ask during an interview
, but not really an illegal question to ask generally. If you already have the job, that would mean that they weren't asking in order to use the information to make a decision about employment.
Now, the comment "I wouldn't want to be looking for a job at that age" is rude, but also it is a recognition of reality. It becomes harder to get a job as you get old, specifically due to discrimination
by employers (which is why the age discrimination
law was passed).
I would make note of the comment, but it only would become relevant if there were more direct acts of discrimination by the employer later on. Then the comment would help to show the underlying motivation.
