ok guys...so here is a general question, I know many of you deal in sales so you might be able to help me out... So the girlfriend is in sales, she gets a base salary plus commission. Basically she has goals so if she makes the goals she gets X-amount plus her salary, if she doesn't make goal she gets her salary pay. Anyway last month she didn't make goal so she should just get her base pay, but apparently her company withholds 10% of any unpaid bills from her clients out of her paycheck. So say she has a client that owes $1,000 they would withhold $100 from her paycheck. So she made a lot less last month then even her small salary. To me this just doesn't seem right...I always viewed it was the liability of the employer to collect past due monies and it all comes down to how aggressive they are at collecting (placing liens, etc...), it shouldn't be left up to the sales person to not only sell but collect on past due payments as well maybe I'm wrong...is this how it always works?
