What is the Illinois law regarding the holding of commissions

Customer Question

What is the Illinois law regarding the holding of commissions once a rep has been terminated when the broker dealer has settled the case? I understand the b/d has the right to settle, but I have been advised not settle to as the alleged charges are unfounded. I was told that the b/d may not keep my commissions in lieu of monies owed in a contested settlement. Please send me the documentation that would corroborate this issue.
Thank you,

This question is a real-estate question, not estate law, so I will submit it to be recharacterized so our real estate law experts can help you with an answer.

Good luck!

You are in error. This has to do with securities. Please return my monies.

Okay, then I will reclassify it as business law. It is not an estate planning question. That much I know! Sorry I was incorrect - there are a lot of folks who confuse real estate with estate planning, and when you used the word "commission" even though I know broker-dealers are usually securities - I assumed real estate.

My apologies.
