Will I get the commission I've already earned if I leave my job as a recruitment consultant?
I'm currently working as a recruitment consultant in Bristol and have the commission from 7 placements outstanding (around about £3000). I'm planning on leaving my current job to get another recruitment job in London and I'm just wondering if my company is obliged to pay out my already earned commission after I've handed in my notice? If anyone has had the same issue I'd be grateful if you could share your experience. Thank you :)
