  • pay for mandatory meetings for commission employees Oklahoma

    Is it legal to mandate that employees be at a meeting if they are not paid anything for it, and if so is there a limit to the amount of meetings that can be held?

  • #2
    Are the employees exempt or non-exempt?
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      IF the commissioned employees are outside sales reps, they are exempt from minimum wage and overtime laws, so no pay is required for the meetings.

      There is no legal limit to the number of meetings over time, but there is a sensible one. Companies make money only when the commissioned employees are making sales. That does not happen if they spend all of their time in meetings.

          DWKubler - would you please start your own new thread - you added to another poster's thread from 9-07 & it gets confusing. Thanks.

            I did Betty....and the only answers I got were completely off track of my questions. I said I was 100% commission, and they went off on a tangent about how THAT is illegal (must make more than certain amount). However, I did state that I NEVER make less than the minimum. Anyways.....I did start a thread, not being helped...and I noticed this similar one and thought I might get a better answer.
