Coffee with Kenny: Exempt Employees and the Tests Necessary to Qualify

In this edition of Coffee with Kenny, Kenny Colbert will discuss the upcoming changes to exempt employees. According to the Fair Labor Standards Act, exempt employees must meet three tests in order to qualify. While one of these tests is very easy to administer, the remaining two are not. Not understanding these tests means companies run the risk of having to pay back pay and/or fines.
