Most of Sarah’s time is spent accompanying the technicians, observing their actions, and helping them carry out their responsibilities. She also spends a great deal of time copying documents and drawings. Sarah has a salary of $48,000 per year. Should Sarah be classified as exempt or non-exempt? Why or why not?
