    That would be a function of the your actual job duties (not just the job title) and maybe your industry. I cannot be more specific unless you are.

        I don't know exactly what that is, but if my assumption is correct, you do not qualify as an exempt employees.

        Yes, you can be paid on a "commission only" basis.

        However, you still must be paid the Florida minimum wage for all hours worked and overtime at your "regular rate of pay" when you work over 40 hours in a workweek. Commissions divided by hours worked = regular rate of pay. This is a very simplistic explanation, I admit.
        I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
