professional  capacities.  The following  requirements  shall  apply  in  determining  whether an  employee’s  duties  meet  the  test to	 	
qualify for an exemption from those  sections: 	
(1) 	 Executive Exemption. A person employed in an executive capacity means any  employee:  
(a) 	 Whose duties and responsibilities  involve the management of the enterprise in which he/she is employed or of   a	 	
customarily recognized department or subdivision thereof; and

and 	
(d)  	 Who customarily and regularly exercises discretion and independent judgment;  and 	
(e) 	 Who is primarily engaged in duties which meet the test of the exemption. The activities constituting exempt  work

Exempt work  shall  include,  for  example,  all  work  that  is  directly  and  closely  related  to exempt  work and  work  which  is  properly	 	
viewed  as  a  means  for  carrying  out exempt  functions.  The work  actually  performed  by the  employee  during the course  of the

employer’s  realistic expectations and the realistic requirements of the job,  shall be considered in determining whether the	 employee 
satisfies this requirement. 	
(f)  	 Such  an employee  must also  earn  a  monthly  salary  equivalent  to no less  than  two (2)  times  the  state  minimum	 	
wage  for full -time  employment.  Full -time  employment  is  defined  in Labor  Code  Section  515(c)  as  40  hours  per  week.

institution,  or  of   a  department  or subdivision  thereof,  in  work  directly  related  to the  academic  instruction  or training  carried on	 	
therein;  and 	
(b) 	 Who customarily and regularly exercises discretion and independent  judgment; and  	
(c) 	 Who  regularly  and  directly  assists a  proprietor,  or  an  employee  employed in a  bona  fide executive  or administrative	 	
capacity (as such terms are defined for purposes of this section);  or

(f) 	 Who  is primarily  engaged  in duties  that  meet  the  test of  the  exemption.  The activities  constituting  exempt work	 	
and non- exempt work shall be construed in the same manner as such terms are construed in the following regulations under  the	 	
Fair  Labor Standards Act effective as of the date of this order: 29 C.F.R. Sections 541.201- 205,  541.207-208, and 541.210,  and

procedures set forth in this wage order, a regularly scheduled alternative workweek schedule of not more than ten (10) hours per day

beyond	
 the schedule established by the agreement up to 12 hours a day or beyond 40 hours per week shall be paid at one and 
one-half
 (11/2) times the employee’s regular rate of pay. All work performed in excess of 12 hours per day and any work in excess

workweek	
 agreement shall be paid at double the employee’s regular rate of pay. Any alternative workweek agreement adopted 
pursuant to
 this section shall provide for not less than four (4) hours of work in any shift. Nothing in this section shall prohibit an 
employer, at

alternative
 workweek agreement on an occasional basis to meet the personal needs of the employee without the payment of

overtime compensation at a rate of one and one-half (1	1/2) times the employee’s regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of

of an alternative workweek schedule. 	
(5) 	An employer shall explore any available reasonable alternative means of accommodating the religious belief or	 	
observance of an affected employee that conflicts with an adopted alternative workweek schedule, in the manner provided by	 	
subdivision (j) of Section 12940 of the Government Code. 	
(6) 	An em
ployer shall make  a reasonable effort to find  a work schedule not to exceed eight (8) hours in  a workday, in	 	
order to accommodate any affected employee who was eligible to vote in an election authorized by this section and who is unable	 	
to work the alternative workweek schedule established as the result of that election. 	
(7)	 An employer shall be permitted, but not required, to provide a work schedule not to exceed eight (8) hours in a work-	 	
day to accommodate any employee who is hired after the date of the election and who is unable to work the alternative workweek	 	
schedule established by the election. 	
(8) 	Arrangements adopted in a secret ballot election held pursuant to this order prior to 1998, or under the rules in effect

are reported by the employer to the Office of Policy, Research and Legislation by January 1, 2001, in accordance with the	 	
requirements of subsection (C) below (Election Procedures). If an employee was voluntarily working an alternative workweek	 	
schedule of not more than ten (10) hours  a day as of July 1, 1999, that alternative workweek schedule was based on an	 	
individual agreement made after January 1, 1998 between the employee and employer, and the employee submitted, and the	 	
employer approved,  a written request on or before May 30, 2000 to continue the agreement, the employee may continue to	 	
work that alternative work- week schedule without payment of an overtime rate of compensation for the hours provided in the	 	
agreement. The employee may revoke his/her voluntary authorization to continue such a schedule with 30 days written notice to	 	
the employer. New arrangements can only be entered into pursuant to the provisions of this section. 	
(C) 	 Election Procedures 	
Election procedures for the adoption and repeal of alternative workweek schedules require the following: 	
(1) 	 Each proposal for an alternative workweek schedule shall be in the form of  a written agreement proposed by the	 	
employer. The proposed agreement must designate a regularly scheduled alternative workweek in which the specified number of	 	
work days and work hours are regularly recurring. The actual days worked within that alternative workweek schedule need not be	 	
specified. The employer may propose a single work schedule that would become the standard schedule for workers in the work unit,	 	
or a menu of work schedule options, from which each employee in the unit would be entitled to choose. If the employer proposes	 	
a menu of work schedule options, the employee may, with the approval of the employer, move from one menu option to another. 	
(2)	 In	 order	 to be	 valid,	 the	 proposed	 alternative	 workweek	 schedule	 must	 be	 adopted	 in a secret	 ballot	 election,	 before the	 	
performance	 of work,	 by at least	 a two-thirds	 (2/3)	 vote	 of the	 affected	 employees	 in the	 work	 unit.	 The	 election	 shall	 be	 held during	 	
regular	 working	 hours	 at the	 employees’	 work	 site.	 For	 purposes	 of this	 subsection,	 ―affected	 employees	 in the	 work	 uni	t‖ may	 	
include	 all employees	 in a readily	 identifiable	 work	 unit,	 such	 as a division,	 a department,	 a job	 classification,	 a shift,	 a separate physical	 	
location,	 or a recognized	 subdivision	 of any	 such	 work	 unit.	 A work	 unit	 may	 consist	 of an	 individual	 employee	 as long	 as the	 criteria	 	
for	 an	 identifiable	 work	 unit	 in this	 subsection	 are	 met.

site. If the  alternative  workweek schedule  is revoked,  the employer  shall  comply  within  60 days. Upon  proper showing  of undue

workweek  election  or for  opposing  or supporting  its adoption  or repeal.  However, nothing  in this  section  shall prohibit  an  employer	 	
from  expressing  his/her position  concerning  that alternative  workweek to  the  affected  employees.  A violation  of this  paragraph  shall	 	
be subject to Labor Code Section 98  et seq.  	
(D) 	 Provisions  of  subsections  (A),  (B),  and  (C)  above  shall not  apply  to  any  employee  whose earnings  exceed  one and one- half

personal  obligation  of the  employee,  the  hours  of  that  makeup  work time,  if performed  in the  same  workweek  in  which  the  work
