  • commission and unpaid days off Texas

    I need to know if my employer can force me to take a vacation day or to use my sick time if I request a day off without pay? I am straight commission sales person without a base salary working retail sales in Texas.
    Thanks for your responce.

    Probably legal. I can say for certain that federal law does not care. I am not expert on TX law, but I will say that as long as you are being paid for the balance being reduced, I would be VERY surprised if any of the 50 states would consider the practice illegal. (Some of the states would not care if you were not being paid for the balance being reduced).

      There is nothing in Texas law that would make this practice illegal.
      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.
