Private answer

Is it legal for employees to be paid on a straight commission basis, i.e. no set base salary? Yes. However, it is very common for a straight commission type of agreement to used in an independent contractor agreement. If your employer is treating you as an employee not as an independent contractor he or she is likely acting within the bounds of the law.

However, there are a lot of facts which should be explored here. If you think your employer is treating you unfairly you should contact Robinson and Henry for a free case evaluation.
