I worked 53 hours during the week of thanksgiving and made a good bit of money. When I got my pay stub my pay seemed to be off by over a hundred dollars from what my commission plus the overtime should have been. After going to my store manager, dm and dsm all that I got was a copy of some calculation of how stylists that commission out with overtime are paid.
you take your commission divided by the hours you worked and that's your average hourly pay rate. Then you times that by 1.5 and you get your average overtime rate. then you take your average hourly rate and times that by 40. then take your average overtime rate and times that by the number of hours you have in overtime. then add the totals together.
versus you getting paid the 800 plus getting 10 hours of your normal pay rate time 1.5. so if you are paid 8.00 your overtime rate would be 12.00
Has anyone else seen this? Is this normal? how long have this been the policy?
I'm very interested in your replies. I've never personally worked during the holidays and I just want to know if this is something legal. thanks.
