Good afternoon,
I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Asking a commission employee to come in before their scheduled appointment to make sure their work area is clean is legal so long as the income they earn pays at least minimum wage for the actual hours that they work in your Solon. You may also demand that they clean up as they go through the day, and before leaving after their shift, as well.
