California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Im a highly compensated individual. I usually earn a base of over 125K. Salespeople of the caliber neccessary to sell the product would cost at least $20/hour. So since the company mistreats and abuses all the sales reps, they do not have a rate for wages for that role by the hour, just a representation that one can make >100K. Other staff in the company are on hourly and their wages for expierenced staff are in the $20 range. Would they impute somesort of wage based on what the job is worth, or perhaps that of what a telemarketer earns, or what an office staff person makes or just minimum since there is no wage assigned by the employer. According to PayScale.com the wage would be between @24K - $70K with up to 10K in bonus and $60K in commission.
So what do you think is the correct amount?
