Min Wage & Commission
We have approximately 80 sales reps, many of which are commission-only. Currently, as a part of the weekly payroll process, we double-check that each sales rep has enough in commissions to guarantee they earn at least minimum wage per hour. For at least 95 percent, they're well above that requirement, but we do have others who struggle to hit the (state) min wage of $7.25.
I've gone over the FLSA multiple times, but cannot find anything referencing this point. Are we legally required to subsidize these hourly rates for commission-only staff to ensure they hit the minimum hourly?
