Client Bites Recruiter

A candidate was submitted to a client company by a recruiter.

The candidate was not a match for the job so, during the interview, the company asked him for a referral of someone who was more suitable for the position. The candidate gave two names.

The recruiter then told his client that if these referrals led to hires, he expected to be given credit for them since they came from his candidate.

The client said "No way. It is part of our recruiting process to get referrals from everyone we interview". Inotherwords, it was their interviewing process that brought these referrals to light.

The recruiter objected that the candidate was only there to be asked for referrals because of the work he performed. What should the recruiter do?
