  • Manditory Overtime Question- Illinois

    Work for a company in IL. Position is a commission based only. Is it legal for them to require us to work overtime without compensation?

    Maybe. No overtime means "Exempt", which is mostly a federal rule (FLSA). All employees are Non-Exempt, unless and until the employer makes an affirmitive claim that one of the Exempt classification tests has been passed. At that point, the rules associated with that particular Exempt classification must be followed. For example, the Exempt classification of Outside Sales could be paid on a Commission Only basis.

    I am going to include a pointer to the federal DOL "FairPay" website. You can find the Exempt classification rules there.
