Attention Thomas Swartz My follow-up question is ----I have a business, it's a business that boots cars when they park illegally a denver boot is put on their car, when I hired people to work as they are told that they make commission or bonuses on all boots completed even though this is their only task to do the job, otherwise they do nothing and receive a wage, this has been giving them close to 20 to 40% in additional wages. besides it being their job to immobilize vehicles they still receive a bonus or commission on each Boot. this is constant and regular basis which is in addition to this salary of which they get 2 to 4 dollars over minimum wage. what do I have to do to label my business or have it be in the same category as a waiter lets say. and pay under the minimum wage because they receive this type of compensation?
OK So who do I contact about this transformation or proper label?
Keep in mind our business or industry is fairly new roughly about 13 years old and still unfamiliar with legislation So being unique to any business Our industry never underwent any description or categorization.
We need to make this known and try to lobby it. Who and what organization/s are the ones we should approach?
I am not looking to pay under minimum wage, However I am involved in a labor law suit for not paying enough overtime although I did pay close to the required time and a half. I was just thinking that since my business is so unique as a matter of fact i am the only private business in the city that does what I do---- I thought it be best to help my casey having my business categorized as this service type buses like a restaurant because the same situation exists as far as the constant commission.
So that I have a better defense!
That answer don't make sense. How did restaurants get their classification or label to begin with?
