Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today.

The law requires employers to pay a minimum wage, including salary, bonuses, tips, and commission. This means that if you are working 55 hours, for all of those things I mentioned combined, your wage must at least be the minimum set by law which is $8.25. So, although you're being paid salary plus commissions, they both have to equal at least $8.25 per hour per pay period. This is the same no matter what state you move to.

Because I value your input, I would like to know whether you have any other questions for me today that I could help you with?

I am being paid $500 Salary, plus $500 or more commission Weekly for working 55 hours. So my Check so $1000 or more. So if I do $8.25 Time 55 Hours = $453.75. Since my total check of $1000 is more than $453.75, this is complient with all state and fed laws? Do Overtime pay get calculated at 1.5, or does that not apply here?

Thanks again for the call!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
