yes, it has a commission policy
It is unclear... the policy states: "[My company] retains the right to recover commissions paid to sales associates on business subsequently determined to be fraudulent or uncollectable" and "Commissions and bonus that were earned for business that cancels prior to the end date of the contract and/or is not paid for by the client will be recovered. Credit will be applied to the Sales Executive for the amount of cash [my company] has received from the client".
On the process of money recovery from the client, the policy states:" The legal recovery and collection attempts may continue until all efforts have been exhausted"...
My employer is applying the policy consistently to employees, but not to clients: actually, as I said before, if the debt collector doesn't recover anything, my employer usually won't continue the collection process
yes, I will continue to earn my basic salary if I remain in a Sales role in the company.
If I move to a non-commission based role within the company, they will recover the commissions from the basic salary
Thanks Jenny; if I understood correctly, they are unlawful only if there's no clause in my contract which entitles them to deduct the money, right?
