  • Meeting pay California

    I am in commission sales at a retail location. I am paid a base ( below minimum wage ) plus commission. Monthly, I am required to attend sales and training meetings outside of store hours at locations other than the store where I work. Currently, my employer pays only the base ammount for attendance at these meetings. Given that I have no opportunity to earn commission at these meetings, I would think that minimum wage should be paid for attending these meetings. Also, from a previous employer, I was paid travel time to and from the same type of meetings based on a ruling from the State Labor Board. In the previous case, I was paid on an hourly basis. How, if at all, would the commission pay come into play here?

    Are you making at least the equivalent of MW when you add in your commissions earned?
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

      as far as I know, you have to get paid at least a minimum wage for the hours you work and commission is just commission, it's something you earn extra in addition to your base pay. Unless you're an outside person that travels more than 50% of the time, you have to get the hourly base pay, at least the minimum wage.

        MW is normally calculated on a work week basis however. Each individual hour does not have to exceed MW.

          Where would I find a refference to wages applying to the weekly hours worked? All I've been able to locate is the minimum wage per hour.

          Thanks
