LEGAL ALERT: SJC Decision Changes Overtime Requirements for 100% Commission Sales Employees
Does your business compensate any of its sales associates through a 100% commission sales model?  If so you may be violating the Massachusetts Wage and Hour laws under a recent decision by the Supreme Judicial Court (SJC) in the case of Laurita Sullivan v Sleepy’s LLC which concluded that 100% commission employees are entitled to receive additional and separate compensation equal to one and one half times the minimum wage for hours worked over 40 in a work week and for work performed on Sunday’s and certain holidays.
RAM is interested in hearing from members regarding their use of 100% commission sales people.  Please take a few minutes to complete a brief survey to help RAM better understand this impact of this decision on membership.
Members interested in learning more about the SJC decision and what steps your business should be taking to ensure compliance with this new interpretation of the MA Wage and Hour laws are invited to participate in a webinar hosted by Josh Nadreau, an employment attorney at Fisher & Phillips, LLC on Wednesday, June 26th at 10:00am.  To register for the webinar please follow this link:
