Farm Labor 102 Webinar: Guidance on the New Legislation in New York

July 30, 2020

NYFB is pleased to partner once again with the law firm Bond, Schoeneck & King to present a complimentary webinar to members on the farm labor regulations that went into effect January 1, 2020.

In a webinar late last year, these attorneys informed our members about overtime pay, the mandatory day of rest, the right to organize and negotiate a Collective Bargaining Agreement, and other topics.
Join us on Thursday, July 30 at 12 p.m. to learn about guidance on these regulations just issued by New York including which employees are excluded from the day of rest provision, who is covered by the over-60 hour overtime provision, the definition of immediate family, and more. Check future FB Alerts for more information.
