I am the owner of an independent sales organization in Los Angeles; I have been in business for the past 18 years. Recently, one of my ex-employees took me to the labor board claiming I owe her for over time pay during trade shows in NY and Las Vegas. She was a salaried employee who was paid commissions on top of her salary for sales within her specified territory. She was given a "comp day" for time worked over weekends. All her travel expenses and meals were paid when she was out of town. Additionally, she claims she is owed monies for lunch hours not taken during trade shows both in LA and during out of town trips. Can anyone specify the "industry standard" regarding compensation for employees working markets and trade shows? My understanding is that as a salaried/commission employee, trade shows were her means of generating sales and part of her job description and responsibilities. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
