What are the Laws for Agricultural Technician Overtime Pay?

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, Agricultural Technicians are often entitled to overtime pay for all hours worked over 40 in one week. If an employer denies an Agricultural Technician overtime wages, it could give rise to an overtime pay lawsuit.

There are strict time limitations for filing a claim so it is important that you discuss your case in a timely manner. If you wait too long, you may lose your ability to recover some or all of your back pay. An experienced Agricultural Technician overtime pay attorney can determine whether you are entitled to overtime wages based upon your job description, job duties, rate of pay, and number of hours worked.

Some states have their own overtime pay laws that may be slightly different from the FLSA with respect to overtime pay for Agricultural Technicians. There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately.

Are Agricultural Technicians Entitled to Overtime Pay?

Because Agricultural Technicians have a wide range of responsibilities across the food science, plant science, and agriculture fields, they often work far more than 40 hours in a workweek. Many of them are not paid overtime for these excess hours as required under the FLSA. The employer’s failure to pay required overtime to an Agricultural Technician can result in a lawsuit for overtime pay.
