Where are you getting the text you're using?
The above is incorrect: See
http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=lab&group=00001-01000&;
file=500-558, which reads:

"515.5. (a) Except as provided in subdivision (b), an employee in
the computer software field shall be exempt from the requirement that
an overtime rate of compensation be paid pursuant to Section 510 if
all of the following apply:"
