Basically commission only pay structures are legal; please see:
However, the employee must be compensated for time spent at employer mandated meetings, for example pursuant to Gonzales v. Downtown LA Motors, 215 Cal.App.4th 36 (2013), which held that a commissioned employee must be separately compensated for time spent under the employer's control performing tasks that are not compensated by the commission structure.
If the employer use to treat that position as a salaried position, and then later amends it, unless there is a contract obligating the employer to the employee, the employer is free to change the terms of the compensation. Furthermore, an employer cannot retroactively change the payment method for closed deals; they can only apply going forward.
