Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. The fact there is no written contract in place actually assists you in this situation.
This is because an employer is not entitled to deduct from wages (including commissions) unless there is an express contractual right to do so.
Or unless you agree.
You should therefore ask for the money to be paid and say if it is not you will bring a claim for unlawful deduction from wages.
If you have any further questions please to ask.
Many thanks for the promptness of your response! I have signed up for a free trial and if I do have further questions I will certainly ask.
Following on from my original question, my commission consists of current and advance bookings (recruitment within the veterinary industry, so some locum positions, some permanent); as I do not have a contract of employment or a formal commission structure, how long can I keep claiming commission for? For example I have bookings that will either be on-going until some point next year and some that are for work in December - all bookings that I have arranged and worked on at some point prior to my leaving the company.
