The overtime laws for farm workers under the FLSA is that they are usually exempt from both federally mandated minimum and overtime wage laws. However, work performed that is not incidental or in conjunction with a farmer’s farming operation is not exempt under the FLSA. Additionally, some states may have their own overtime pay laws that may be slightly different from the FLSA with respect to overtime pay for farm workers.
An experienced agricultural worker 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. 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.
