In California, at least, the 'exempt' status can't simply be decided by
the employer.

It is defined by statute according to well-defined characteristics of
the job activities and responsibilities.
A number of major employers are learning this- I don't know if the HR
folks weren't paying attention, or the slavedrivers/ managers weren't
listening to HR.
