Overtime for Sales Representatives

Understanding Your Rights with Help from Atlanta Overtime Attorneys

Are you a sales representative who works from home or works inside an office but doesn't visit customers regularly at their place of business? Are you paid on an hourly and/or commission basis?

If you are not being paid time-and-a-half for your hours over 40 on your commission, you may be owed thousands of dollars in back wages. If you are working on a pure commission basis, then your employer likely owes you thousands in minimum wage for the weeks you were not paid anything and time-and-a-half on minimum wage for your hours over 40. Additionally, in the weeks you were paid commissions and worked over 40 hours per week, your employer owes you time-and-a-half of your commission for the weeks you worked more than 40 hours.

Employers often misclassify sales representatives under the Fair Labor Standards Act. By doing that, employers are stealing the money that you have rightfully earned. In addition, by failing to pay you appropriately, the employer can be required to go back three years and pay you double your back wages.
