California Employment Law

When you call in sick in CA are you required to do any work?
when you call in sick are you required to still work from home?
please let me know what details you need.
I am a commission based employee, no salary, not hourly. how does that affect the situation? Thanks for your prompt attention to these questions. I look forward to giving you an A+ review.
So does that mean as a commissioned employee that is on a weekly pay schedule, if I do not make any commission for that pay period the employer owes me min wage for that pay period? As a commissioned employee sometimes I have 1 or 2 weeks I do not have a check because I made no sales.
So as an outside employee sales rep, is the company required under CA law to reimburse my travel mileage and toll to my set appointments?
California Labor Code Section 2802 which can be found here will tell you more:
Thank you for the great information. Would my employer legally be able to deny my mileage and toll reimbursement because I did not submit it before the end of the 2012 year? Basically since I am just learning that I am entitled to reimbursement I have not submitted a reimbursement request and am curious if they can legally deny it for any reason, and if they do would I have any legal recourse on my side?
Would me being a licensed insurance agent change any of the situation?
Also they base the appointment scheduling from my home address Tuesday through Friday/Saturday, but I am required to go to the office every Monday. So can I count the miles and toll for the appointments but not for Monday meetings?
