  • Comission sales

    I work in cosmission Sales in Oregon, I only get paid if I make sales or they revert to minimun wage. My Question is, there are times when I am required to attend training , which requires travel and the use of an intire day. Which also means not being available for sales. I am not paid to attend these training sessions ,yet I am Told I can be fired if I misss or do not attend the training. Is this Legal? Sometimes this mandatory training occurs On my scheduled day off. I usually have no advance warning other than the day before. I also write training on my time card and write in my time spent on travel and class. I work as a car salesmen for a Toyota Dealership

    You can be required to attend training of this type as long as you are paid minimum wage. And, while it may be a morale issue, your employer only has to ensure that you are paid minimum wage, assuming you are an hourly employee.
