Title 29: Labor
PART 780—EXEMPTIONS APPLICABLE TO AGRICULTURE, PROCESSING OF AGRICULTURAL COMMODITIES, AND RELATED SUBJECTS UNDER THE FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT
Subpart D—Employment in Agriculture That Is Exempted From the Minimum Wage and Overtime Pay Requirements Under Section 13(a)(6)


§780.324   Requirements for the exemption to apply.

(a) All the following conditions must be met in order for the exemption to apply to an employee:

(1) He must be “engaged in agriculture”;

(2) Be “principally engaged”;

(3) On the “range”, and

(4) In the “production of livestock.”

(b) Since the raising of livestock is included in the definition of agriculture under section 3(f) of the Act (see §§780.119-780.121 of subpart B of this part), the range production of livestock would normally be deemed agriculture work, and, consequently, an employee, during this time he is engaged in such activities, would meet the basic requirement of the exemption that he be “employed in agriculture.”

The following sections discuss the meaning and application of the other requirements.
