  • Comission Only Ohio

    I need some general advice here. My daughter just got a jos as a hair stylist in a local salon. During the interview she was told that its comission only, so if she has no clients all day she doesnt get paid, no matter how longs she works. But while sitting around she's told by the boss to do some cleaning for others who are cutting hair. This is her first "real" job since graduation and she does not want to say anything. Im of the opinion that she should at least get paid for cleaning. She's 18 and we live in Ohio if that helps.

    If she's an employee (not an independent contractor), she must be paid at least minimum wage for all hours worked. And that includes cleaning, administrative duties, or just sitting around waiting for a customer. If her commission for the workweek averages to at least minimum wage (based on all hours worked), then that would be all the law requires.
