New overtime provisions for farmworkers go into effect

Farmworkers in California will soon see changes to the wage and hour laws that govern their employment. While most workers in the state must receive overtime pay if they work over eight hours in a day or 40 hours in a week, farmworkers have long been exempted from these protections. However, laws are going into effect with the new year in 2019 that can provide some increased protections. California is the first state in the country to pass legislation requiring overtime pay for farmworkers.
