"Salesperson" is defined as one who makes sales of, or obtains orders or contracts for, materials, services, or the use of facilities for which payment will be made. Incidental deliveries, collections, and other nonsales or nonsolicitation work that is directly related to the primary sales duties shall be considered the work of a salesperson. An outside salesperson is hired for the express purpose of performing such duties away from the employer's place(s) of business and conducts no more than 20 percent of sales on those premises. The hours of nonoutside sales work may not exceed 20 percent of the hours worked by employees who are not outside salespersons.
