The most commonly used white collar exemptions are the executive, administrative, and professional exemptions. These may be applied when the position/employee passes three tests:
- They perform non-manual work and their primary duties are executive, administrative, or professional.
- They make a minimum salary of $455 per week, which equals $23,660 per year.
- They are paid on a salary basis, meaning they receive the same pay each week regardless of number of hours worked, or the quantity or quality of their work.
