If you answered yes to the above question, you may be surprised to know that the deciding factor is not whether or not you receive sales commissions. In fact, unless a salesperson receives more than half of his/her compensation in the form of "commissions", he/she is still entitled to overtime compensation!
If you are a commissioned salesperson who is not receiving overtime pay, please call The Law Office of Seth E. Tillmon to discuss whether you are entitled to overtime pay when you work more than eight hours in a day or more than forty hours in a week.
California law assumes that all employees are entitled to be paid at 1.5 times their regular rate of pay (sometimes referred to as "overtime wages", "overtime pay", or simply "OT") for all hours in excess of 8 per day or 40 per week.
California law also assumes that all employees are entitled to be paid at 2 times their regular rate of pay (sometimes referred to as "double-time wages", "double-time pay", or simply "golden time") for all hours worked in excess of 12 in a day.
California law also assumes that all employees are entitled to a duty-free 30-minute meal period before the beginning of their sixth hour of work each day, and that all employees are entitled to a second duty-free 30-minute meal period before the beginning of their eleventh hour of work on each day any such employee works more than ten hours.
California law also assumes that all employees are entitled to a duty-free 10-minute rest period on each day that they work at least 3.5 hours, and that all employees are entitled to a second duty-free 10-minute rest period on each day that any such employee works more than six hours.
You never know...what you may think of as "no big deal", may actually be a "big deal" in the eyes of the law and entitle you to significant compensation.
