Exempt vs. Nonexempt Employees


Make sure your company is familiar with the requirements that must be met to classify an employee as exempt.

Generally, two requirements must be met to classify an employee as exempt under the “white-collar” exemption. They must earn a salary of $455 or more per week; and hold a position with duties the U.S. Department of Labor designates as appropriate for exempt positions. This video reviews the executive and administrative employee checklist, as well as the learned and creative professional employee checklist; and wage and hour exemptions and the salary basis test.
