The overtime pay laws for a salesman can be quite complex. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to pay non-exempt salesmen workers an overtime wage of time-and-a-half for all hours worked over 40 in one workweek. Some states have also enacted overtime laws that regulate the number of hours an employee can work within 24 hours before receiving overtime.
In calculating the number of hours worked, the employer must consider all required work performed in all facilities and departments, both before and after a shift, including staff meetings and required paid training.
