Your question is deceptively difficult. There are two types of salaried employees (exempt and nonexempt). An exempt employee must receive a minimum monthly salary of $2,773.33 -- regardless of commissions.
So, you are clearly not an salary-exempt employee.
A nonexempt salary employee may be exempt from overtime if (1) the employee's total monthly earnings exceed one and one-half times the minimum wage, (2) more than half
of that employee's compensation represents commissions, and (3) the commissions are earned in the mercentile industry (sales of goods, e.g., clothes, tools, building supplies, optical products, auto parts, cars, boats, appliances, etc.).
fall into this category. If yes, then your employer's actions are legal.
If neither of the above applies to you, then your employer's actions are illegal and you are entitled to be paid an hourly wage plus overtime, regardless of your salary. To file a wage claim withe the DLSE, see this link.
Note: wage claims can go back 3 years.
Hope this helps.
