Is it kosher to work for two companies at once?

I have a friend who is working full-time for company A. She has accepted a job offer for a full-time position from company B. She gave notice to company A, planning to quit tomorrow (Friday), and start at company B on Monday. However, she is owed some commissions and bonuses by company A, and her management at company A has convinced her to remain in employment with company A until her commission situation is squared away and she has been paid out. She still plans to begin employment with company B on Monday but not to tell company B about her (temporary) continuing employment with company A. For reasons I am having trouble articulating, I think she may be setting herself up for a world of hurt if company B finds out what she's doing. Is my concern ill-placed? This is all taking place in the US, btw.
