Hello and thank you for allowing me to address your legal question.

You’re entitled to anything that you’ve already earned. Therefore, if there are unpaid commissions for sales that are completed, then you are certainly entitled to them. If there are potential commissions for sales that are not completed, but which will be completed in the future, then you may be entitled to a portion of them depending on the amount of work you performed.

If you and your former employer cannot come to an agreement on such commissions, and you sue, then a court will want you to prove the amount of work you performed to make the sale happen. If you played a substantial role, you will probably be given a percentage of the ordinary commission.

Does that answer your question?
