  • Commission pay and lost

    I moved to Ky to work as a 1005 commissioned employed with a local mortgage company almost 3 years ago. I was just terminated from my job on Friday due to what the company called a poor leadership decision on my part. I had a trainee, while i am still paid 100% commission, and this trainee had a lead/customer that he attempted to contact 3 times. He never had any luck so I took the customer info and tried contacting them via email and phone messages. Finally after a week, the customer contacted me and wished to do business with me. After almost two months of work on helping her with her mortgage refinance, we were ready to close on Friday and my boss decided to fire me for not giving the loan to the trainee. Is this a fair termination? No, there is nothing in the a handbook that says I have to do this. He felt I lied, mislead and that it was not my loan to take the commission for. Also, we work inside an office, what laws are there for being 100% commission and to working 60+ hours per week, given semi management role but still being only compensated by my own sales? Thanks
