I am a salary plus commission employee. How can an employer pay me a salary when I work more than 8 hours on a given day, buy pay me as an hourly employee if I work less than 8 hours.
Either I am salary or hourly. I can't be both. CAN I ?
Also,I sell heating and air conditioning equipment with the installation. I asked about how an employer can take away commission on a job that goes over on my projected hours, but refuse to pay me more when the jobs come in way under budget. How can any employer be so unfair. Is this illegal or just immoral?
I plan to eventually quit this company, but need to know if I can recover any of the money that has been taken from me by hiring a lawyer.
The job is sold as a contract job. It includes permits, equipment and labor.
Based on the company software, the labor produces more markup revenue, but there is no breakdown given to me for my records. They track both the materials used and the labor..
