Hunny and I work 7 days a week..
I try very hard to schedule things so the guys don't have to work weekends.. So I don't need anyone in the office..
On the occasion that we are busy enough to need it OR one of the guys needs to make some extra $$ We can work around it.
My daughter is my other office help. If she needs to come in she gets paid OT

Ny law OT is to e paid if you are an "employee". I have 2 girls that work mon-fri, and 2 that work tue-sat. Sat is necessary to get the work from friday processed. Mondays are generally slow being they work sat. Scorecards are important

Are you an actual employee or 1099? As a 1099 you may have some work that you do for free...I don't think anyone should work for free, but if you are 1099 and think that you will get more work by offering great customer service. Then I think that makes sense.

Many new companies, outside of property preservation, have to work for free, or lose money, just to get their first few initial customers.

we have several 1099 in the office , but from day one i refuse to be on commission. Why? I had no idea about preservation, second didnt have an account, an account was giving to me when i came in the office so i am a w2. But my boss says i have to sell 20 k a month to be able to pay me $17 per hour, so if i dont work wkends i wont be able to achieve the 20 k and then he will probably reduce my hourly pay .

So this was his solution. Hey bud dont come to work on monday and work saturday !!!!! The problem is you are never certain when are work orders coming in this is a very unpredictable business, you get nothin today 20 orders tomorrow, so what if i dont come monday and 20 orders come in?? U knw just pay me overtime, i even offer my own personal computer which is set up already with the applications ready to work from home, he didnt have to spend a dime on it. I set myself up to work from home on my own been a w2 40 hours a week. I will like to find someone who can appreciate me more and what im capable of bringing to the table thats it.

As the head cook and bottle washer, I work 24/7. The only folks that work weekends for me are the ones who want to.
Sounds like you need to refer to your employee handbook for company policy or your local labor board to see if you even qualify as an employee. From your description, I can't wrap my head around what exactly you are doing.
You are an hourly employee making $17 per hour, but you have to sell 20k per week or your wage gets cut? You work Tues thru Friday for 40 hours at the office but Sat at your house for no pay, using your computer.

I would recommend finding a different job Santyy30 . Its not possible that you can "sell" 20k a week, unless you are talking about processing 20k in orders a week. Even then, this industry is always changing, and you cant depend on it to consistently provide 20k in processing a month.

I double it, just find different job in some different industry all together. This industry pays nothing and too many hours to log
