Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission

Real estate agent not entitled to commission for listings

The Full Bench unanimously dismissed an appeal by a real estate agent who claimed that he was entitled to $42,700 in commission payments from his former employer.  The Full Bench found real estate agents are only entitled to listing commissions if they are ‘in fact the effective cause’ of the firm winning the listing. 

The reliable evidence did not satisfy the Commission at first instance that the appellant caused the listing, and the Full Bench unanimously agreed.  Therefore, the Full Bench found, the claim was correctly dismissed.
