"First off, that should be clearly stated in a persons employment contract before he/she starts.  Pay the full amount within a day after the guarantee period is completed, no excuses!"

"Sounds like that. Always have an signed agreement so everyone knows the expectations. You wouldn't even work with other recruiters outside on splits w/o one. "

"Based on her questions like "How do you establish such a policy?", we can assume that there was no agreement/contract was in place. If there are no agreements, then following state law is best practice. "

Steve N Odell replied to Kerry M. Beck Konstantin's discussion 'Payment of Commission to Recruiters Who Resign'
"You pay as to what the agreement/contract states. All knew what the game rules were when they signed up. You don't change the rules in the middle of the game. By all means make sure it complies with State law. We did. "
