Commission entitlement after quitting job?

Year end has already passed, and I am debating whether or not to quit my job. Commission is payed out annually after year end (but I have yet to receive it, and it can be delayed for a few more months is history is my guide).

If I quit today, for instance, am I entitled to my complete commission?
If so, what is the maximum amount of time the employer is allowed to delay this payment?

i see alot of firings that my lawfirm handles where the client wants ..and appears to get all commission owed to him/her up to the firing date.

I think you should be paid all commission.

If u earned the commission (or bonus) before quitting, u should get paid for it.

Check your contract and that will give you the answer if you are entitled to it or not. Don't listen to a bunch of randoms on the net as each case is different and depend on the contract you signed.

Original contract said nothing, and technically is not even in effect (eg 'annual contract' yet to be updated in a few years)

Check your employee handbook then. I know it has be written somewhere as to when you get paid and the stipulations for it.
