  • Working over 40 hours a week Iowa

    Are instore commissioned sales people entitled to overtime pay? Can we be told that it is MANDATORY to work 50-60 hour weeks?

    Mandatory overtime is allowed. Overtime pay is required if you work over 40 hours in a workweek.

      It is possible for inside sales folks to be exempt from overtime if over half their pay is from commissions and the base rate of pay is one and a half times minimum wage, as I recall.

          Scott or Patty,

          Could you please tell me what your refering to when you state that Inside Sales can be considered exempt? Is it 29CFR779 Subpart B?

          THANKS!

            It's not Exempt as in an Exempt employee. It's (little e) exempt as in exempt from the overtime (only) provisions of the FLSA. Inside salespersons are, by the nature of the job, nonexempt.
