If your regular pay exceeds $82,000 (I'm rounding up here) AND you and your employer are both willing to assert that the work you do does NOT consist of repetitive, rote tasks and DOES require creativity, discretion and/or independent judgement, you can still be exempt under the 2008 California law.

In practice, anytime you work through a temp agency, you're going to get classified as non-exempt no matter what you and your employer/s assert, because working as a temp pretty much defines you as interchangeable commodity labor in the eyes of the state. But as long as you are full-time direct and make more than the threshold pay level, the biggest determinant in whether employers want to classify you as exempt or non-exempt is really going to be whether they really understand the law and whether someone who had your job before you raised a stink about not getting OT pay. Because they obviously don't WANT to have to pay you OT.

Yes, have you found a legitimate exemption to that one?
