Contractor min wage?

I have a friend who is working as a contractor for a place, he's getting commission but was explicitly told there is no guarantee he'll make a decent haul, and that he'll have no salary. If he works more than 40 hrs a week is he entitled to anything though? Maybe some sort of wage kicks in at that point?

  • Hi Neil553,

    As a contractor, your friend is not entitled to minimum wage. Occasionally commission based jobs are given to regular workers, who must be paid at least minimum wage, but this doesn't apply to contractors. 

    Hope this helps!
