OPINION
_________________________

KAREN NELSON MOORE, Circuit Judge. Defendants hhgregg, Inc. and Gregg Appliances, Inc. have a uniform compensation policy whereby their retail and sales employees, who are paid solely on the basis of commission, are advanced a “draw” to meet the minimumwage requirements whenever their commissions fall below minimum wage. The amount of the draw is then deducted from future earnings in weeks when the employees’ commissions exceed the minimum-wage requirements. Plaintiffs Robert Stein and Robert Beck, on behalf of themselves and all other former and current employees of defendants, brought suit claiming violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and of state law. The district court found that defendants’ compensation policy was legal, and that plaintiffs therefore could not state a claim on which relief could be granted. The district court dismissed all of plaintiffs’ federal claims, and declined to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over their remaining state-law claim. We REVERSE the district court’s judgment dismissing plaintiffs’ case, and we REMAND the case for further proceedings.
