ot & commissions

all nonexempt employees who work in california are entitled to daily overtime for hours worked more than eight, since 1/1/01. before that, for a period of time, you were entitled only to weekly overtime. if you are an outside salesperson however, you may be exempt.
if commissions were taken away in response to your complaints of denial of overtime, that might be retaliation. also, you may already have earned the commissions you were denied.
you need to speak with an attorney experienced in employment law. please call for a telephone interview.

Looks like you are getting ripped off right and left!

What about break time and lunch...how was that treated?

How many hours per week?

In general, you may have a case, but it depends on the job duties and a lot of other things.

Also, is it just you, or others at your company?

Call or email if you would like an interview.
