    (a) the employee's wage;

    (b) the basis for calculating commission payments;

    (c) the period over which commission payments are calculated which may not be longer than one month;

    (d) when the employer must pay commission payments to the employee which may not be longer than one month after the end of the period in which the commission is earned; and
