My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Arkansas
Ok, short & sweet, although there are several issues in play here...I work for a staffing/recruiting agency. The owner started paying a bonus/commission to the person making the placement on any permanent placements made...a % of the fee that is charged to the company, with the stipulation that it would be paid 3 mths. after the placement was made IF the candidate was still employed at the client company. Now, I am resigning & I have several placements I made that would not "pay out" for about 6-8 weeks after I resign. There was no contract...only an email outlining the guidelines as to when and how much the pay-out would be, it does NOT state that you have to be present/employed to get this bonus. Since it's really more of a commission, are they obligated to still pay this & is there a timeframe to pay it out since I'm resigning before the 3 month rule?
