An employer is not always required to pay overtime to an outside salesperson, however there are certain exemptions when it comes to paying outside salespersons overtime pay benefits. In order for an employer to be required to pay overtime an outside salesperson must: regularly sell from home or have other job duties in addition to sales. Exemptions include but not limited to the primary duty of making sales, taking orders, or contracting with customers for services or facility use.
