  • Michigan Commissions and Draws Michigan

    I am an employee I signed a contract that I get 500 a week draw against future commissions, have to work in the office for 40 hours a week and attend any functions that the company requires. I have 12,000 due in commissions and the company only wants to pay me 8000 cause I had 4000, in drwas before the sales. but I answered phones and did secretarial things for this company am I at least entitled to minimum wage for this?

    Probably. Did you ever sell in the field? The key is that you either qualified for the FLSA Outside Sales exception, or you do not. That is a function of looking at the actual rules in the exception. If the Outside Sales exception fails, then it is a near certainty that you must be paid (at least) minimum wage for all hours worked.
