New here- I left my previous employer 4 months ago and I'm still waiting for final commission payment. I am owed a considerable amount but they are holding back payment until they collect all receivables. In the interim, it is apparent that costs are being applied to my orders since my departure which are reducing my payout amount. Since I no longer have control over costs applied, or receivables collected- do I have any recourse? Is there a reasonable amount of time in which I should expect payment?
I've started a new company in direct competition- I did not have a non- compete agreement, but I'm concerned they are trying to penalize me.
