    Seems that Sears settled out of court on a class action suit related to Sears not including commissions in overtime pay calculation. Given Fry's creative pay schemes, one has to wonder of the Fry's brothers are next.

    To my knowledge, Fry's already pays commissioned sales people the way that Sears was "supposed" to be paying them. I used to make $8 plus commission but overtime for me meant about $16 per hour. I used to love overtime as a salesman.  
     
    EDIT: On second thought, the math doesn't add up. Regular overtime would be $12 per hour but I averaged $8 per hour in commission. That means I "should" have been paid $24 per hour? Let's Sue!!!

    Won't do much good. Fry's will fight dirty in court, hire the best lawyers, "accidentally" lose documents, etc. Even if they do lose in court, class action suits are a joke: the lawyers will take all of it and each affected employee will maybe get a $50 Fry's gift card. If they're lucky.

    Don't know about that man. Seems those other guys won. If nothing else it's worth a shot. Some lawyers will work for fees on class action stuff because it pays them reaaaaal nice.

    Store #7 lost power years ago and remained in business until the fire department was called and forced to shutdown the store due to safety hazards.  
     
    The sales people that worked off commission never got paid because the fine they got from the department had to be paid in full.  
     
    There are also tactics and solutions that they will have you clock out and back in again during overtime/midnight hours to resolve overtime pay or sign a waver. They definatly have alot of scheme to go by.

    Maybe there was another time Store #7 lost power, the one I remember was during the Angels vs Yankees playoff game in '04. Associates had flashlights and they were going to try and ring everyone up manually with calculators up front, if I recall correctly. Left the store and came back later, the sales girl was not pleased that I did not want to stand in line in the dark.
