The employee's hourly wage
, if the aggregate of multiple payment agreements, must be calculated as 1/40th of the employee's total weekly pay (including hours and commissions). This is known as the "regular rate," and it is that rate which would ordinarily appear on an hours line item.
See DLSE 2002 Enforcement Policies & Interpretations Manual (Revised), §§ 49.1-126.96.36.199; §§ 48.1.6-48.1.8; DLSE Opinion Letters 2000.09.29 & 1991.01.07-1.
I can see that this could create the illusion of your owing more than what is actually paid, because you have a potential hourly multiple on one line item, plus a commission on another. The only thing I could suggest would be to provide some notation that the calculation is merely intended to provide the employee's "regular rate" of pay, and not to suggest that an additional amount of pay is due.
Hope this helps.
