Question: “I’m in desperate need of some way to explain the concept of exempt and
nonexempt employees to top management in my company. I know there are
strict legal definitions, but I wish someone would come up with an
informative shorthand description of the difference between the two
categories. I also need a way to impress on management the importance
of carefully distinguishing between exempt and nonexempt status. Any
advice?” — Ron C., Oklahoma
