It is not legal if they do not make at least minimum wage for hours worked. Employee can report it to the state labor department.

Licensed real estate brokers and auto sales people are allowed to receive ONLY commission... do licensed health insurance agents fall into that same category?
Expert:  INFOLAWYER replied 7 years ago.
If at the end of the pay period they have not earned enough to cover min wage, they can pursue a complaint with the labor department. Most commission structures to avoid such problems provide for min wage and commission to be applied.
