Stand Up for Your Rights: The California Labor Law and Extended Warranties

In the bustling world of retail, there’s one offer that consistently stands out: the extended warranty. This seemingly small add-on has emerged as a lucrative avenue for many businesses, especially those in sectors like furniture and car sales. The reasons are clear: extended warranties can bring in profits of up to a whopping 70%. At first glance, this seems like a win-win for both the business and the salesperson. The company earns a hefty profit, and the salesperson, motivated by attractive commissions of up to 30%, is incentivized to push these warranties even more.

But there’s a catch.

Let’s delve a bit deeper. Imagine a diligent salesperson who not only sells products but also manages to convince customers about the value of extended warranties. As they work tirelessly, sometimes even clocking in overtime, their paycheck should reflect not just their regular hours but also the overtime they’ve accumulated. Now, here’s where things get tricky. The commissions they’ve earned from those extended warranties? By California Labor Law, they must be blended into their overtime wage.

Yet, there’s a widespread practice that goes unnoticed or even intentionally overlooked by many employers. These employers, in direct violation of the state law, often skip out on blending commissions into the overtime wage. Such acts don’t just rob employees of their hard-earned money; they also undermine the very foundation of fair employment practices.

Now, if you’re a salesperson in California, selling extended warranties and often working overtime, pause for a moment. Reflect on your earnings. Are you getting the compensation that’s rightfully yours? If there’s even a hint of doubt, it’s time to take action.
