In addition to meeting the minimum weekly earnings, called the "wage test", positions must also pass what is referred to as the "duties test." This e-learning will review the duties tests associated with the most common workplace exempt statuses, including a discussion on the dreaded "exercise of discretion and independent judgment with respect to matters of significance" associated with the Administrative exemption category.
